Daniel Holsapple: At our company’s facility in Humboldt Bay we raise juvenile oysters in tanks on a small barge. As seawater is pumped into the tanks and through the oysters it pours back into the bay through the deck grating. This creates an artificial intertidal zone where goose barnacles, mussels, limpets, and algae can flourish.

Ian Jefferds: A big river otter (Lontra canadensis) is shown hauled out on our mussel raft in Quilcene Bay. The river otters are adept at catching fish and eating shellfish found around floating mussel rafts, where food is plentiful and the otters have a safe place to rest.
