Oyster Farming in Cape Cod Bay

When the tide goes out in Cape Cod Bay, oysters close up and oyster farmers walk out to visit. The farmers separate the little oysters to give them room to grow, and clean their cages so the water’s nutrients reach the hungry creatures. Oysters pump water through their gills to eat, filtering out yucky stuff and cleaning the Bay!
