How Do Oysters Get Harvested?
You may be interested in oyster farming.
- Handpicking is when people go to the ocean and pick oysters from the rocks or shells with their hands.
- Raking: To collect oysters, the rake is pulled along the bottom.
- Dredge using mechanical devices. This is a sustainable bay as it doesn’t disturb the seabed. Scraping dredge collects oysters from the top layer of seafloor sediments using rakes or teeth that scoop up the substrate. To chase shellfish from muddy or rocky bottom substrates, piercing dredges use pressure water to pressurize the water and place them in bags.
Oysters are unusually able to avoid attaching themselves to rocks or other objects within their habitat.
Wild Harvest Oysters
Wild harvest oysters are oysters that have been harvested from the sea, and not raised in aquaculture. They are more natural and pure than cultivated oysters because they are harvested from the ocean and not farmed.
Wild oyster harvesting is very different from farmed or cultivated varieties. Because they are not raised in tanks, but on natural reefs, this is why the process of harvesting wild oysters is so different.
