Oyster Aquaculture Apprenticeship
Dudley Biddlecomb has been raising and farming oysters in his family's bed since he was born, where his grandfather started dredging oysters in the 1800s. Biddlecomb is passing his knowledge of new techniques to rebuild the oyster population in and around the Chesapeake Bay to his apprentice Peter Hedlund. Photos taken on Thursday, June 29 2012.
