  1. Christopher D.: That’s good news! Our family have enjoyed oysters on a private Hood Canal beach (south of Seabeck) for decades and we always insist that the shells remain on the beach so new ones can form.

  2. Looks like they’ve scheduled that about a week late, based on tides, and presumably daytime operations. Oysters live in the intertidal zone, a bit below mean. That spot in Sinclair is tricky, as it is so flat and shallow. The draft of a barge suitable for that job, and the tug to move it, need enough water that placement needs to be done with a decent water level, or the shells will fall only as far as that craft can go. Perhaps the setup they have can do it in just a couple hours, and they plan on doing it after 2pm?

    1. I believe you have that right. They have scheduled this very carefully in the afternoon and over several days.
