Movie Depicts Oyster Divers in Long Island


by Peter Basildon |
Watch a group of Oyster divers as they head out in Long Island Sound to collect catch some truly wild oysters.

Here’s a great short film which focuses on the work of oyster divers in Long Island Sound.

The film shows the teams that still go out and handpick wild oysters, venturing out daily to provide New York with some super fresh hauls.

The ten minute movie is well worth a watch, produced by Show Love, it shows a form of oyster farming that is now very rare as more commercial operators opt to rake oysters and more oysters come from farms.

Take a look.
