Inside an Oyster Packing Plant


In his latest post, Gerald takes us into the Crystal Seas oyster packing plant in Mississippi where each worker hand shucks 8-10 oysters a minute. The oysters are triple-rinsed before being collected in six pound buckets and the empty shells are planted back in the Gulf of Mississippi to become the new homes for next season's oysters. See more photos on Gerald's website, Foodite— I especially like the the ones of the oyster "waterfall."
