Description

Large cluster of oysters. Every leg of the main jetty that was underwater in high tide was covered in these. It seems some of their shells are a bit cracked to reveal yellow flesh.

A smaller, black cluster of other bivalves was also adjacent to this patch; their observation is https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/2669743
