Crab, Oysters, Live Lobster, Manila Clams

Astoria, Oregon ~ May 8, 2011

'Tis the season for things that come from the water. Dungeness crabs are caught by the boats we see going back and forth on the river. Amazing oysters come from famous oyster beds just across the river in Washington. I'm not sure about the live lobsters. I think they must be flown in, and maybe someone can enlighten me about that. We can dig for razor clams at the beach during some seasons, but I'm not sure where we get Manila clams. What's the story on this?

In the background you can see the hotel and bridge from yesterday's post; I took that photo when the sun was out for a few minutes. Yes, Jacob, the tide is definitely out! The table in the foreground is for cleaning your catch. I'll show you the sign tomorrow. The cloudy sky is so typical. The blue is the anomaly, although we've had a couple of truly glorious days this year.

This is our sign at Northwest Wild Products

Our Manila aka Steamer Clams come from Wilapa Bay about 20 miles north of Astoria.

Oh yeah...Our lobsters are flown in to Portland and we pick them up from a wholesaler. We get about 5 a week and keep live in our saltwater tanks with the Dungeness Crab.
