Oyster workers, tending their oysters at low tide in St. Vaast la Hougue, France, which is situated in the cradle of Normandy's oyster industry.

The oysters are enclosed in sacks that need regular turning to separate them, and are farmed on either side of the town.

The oyster growers of Normandy produce about 25% of all the oysters in France, approx. 35,000 metric tons annually. The area of oyster cultivation encompasses more than 2,700 acres.
