Maybe I’m a bad Washingtonian. Until recently, I’d lived here for 8 years and never made it all the way to the coast. I knew that there was a burgeoning oyster and shellfish fishery but I never really figured out where it was. Well… both of those things have now been corrected. Driving to Long Beach WA, we passed Willapa Bay – the source of all these oysters. I guess the other thing that didn’t really occur to me is that if you catch tons and tons of oysters in one place, you probably end up with a lot of shells.
