1930 Warm Beach (Port Susan) Oysters

Back to oldcamano.net

Below is an article from the November 6, 1930 Stanwood newspaper that tells about growing oysters in Port Susan Bay at Warm Beach. I don't know what happened to these 15,000 oysters, but I think the constant winter storms would have washed the oysters up the beach, and different predators (starfish, seagulls, crows, ect...) could have reduced their numbers, and a very cold winter or hot summer could have killed many. They may not have gotten the 400,000 oyster spat, from Japan, they were planning on in the spring of 1931.
