Yesterday I paid a visit to the mouth of Walker Creek where it enters Tomales Bay.
There are 4 growers that extract profits in the form of oysters in this area.
Storms regularly rip their equipment out and paint it all over Tomales Bay, and the entire ocean.
These bags become lodged in the mud and pickleweed and are buried, to be ground into plastic bits forever.
The farmers must walk these areas every month, if not more often, to ensure the mess they make gets cleaned up before being buried in the mud and pickleweed.
The regulating agencies must exercise their authority and ensure that laws are being observed, fining those that continue to break the laws enacted to protect the environment.
This post will be updated, so come back to see more of the damage caused to our fragile planet by oyster farming.
