Touring Tarbouriech Oyster Farm in the Etang de Thau, Languedoc

The cooler waters of the R-months in North America mean prime time for eating oysters. As some of you know I did a post over at Serious Eats on drinks to pair with oysters. I also promised to take a look here at one way we get that shellfish. Here’s a look at a tidal-influence inspired oyster farm from the Languedoc. It was a ton of fun. I love being on boats as I grew up on the water, and am generally fascinated to know how almost anything works. I really enjoyed getting to learn through the stages from alien-like oyster reproduction to growth, to monster size gonna-getcha growth.

In the Etang de Thau, an oyster rich pond where the Languedoc meets the Mediterranean, the Tarbourichfamily farms what are considered to be some of the highest quality oysters in Europe.
