The Museum held its fourth annual Oyster Talk and Tasting in August. The event began with a talk by local oyster growers Eric Matzen and Pete Chase. Eric and Pete are founding members of the Falmouth Shellfishermen’s Co-operative and have pioneered oyster aquaculture on the Falmouth shore of Buzzards Bay. They described the benefits and challenges of growing oysters on the Cape and gave a demonstration of how to successfully and safely open oysters. After the talk, attendees got to taste oysters from several different locales. Below are some photos from the event.
