Oyster Harvesting


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Demand for Oregon oysters outstrips supply. Scientists are hoping that the hardy, tasty suminoe oyster, from Japan, can give a boost to the oyster farming industry. The oysters are being studied at the Hatfield Marine Science Center and in the waters of Yaquina Bay.

First Broadcast: 1992
