Star Item
  • Description

    Whitstable, Kent.

    Fishermen set out from the harbour at Whitstable with buckets full of young oysters, reared in river beds; these will be thrown in the sea to mature (we don't see them being thrown in!).

    At sea a dredger is lowered into the water to bring up oysters and other sea creatures; a young man rolls a cigarette while waiting. Starfish and other sea creatures are amongst the catch; the men sort through the oysters to pick out the biggest and best ones; the ones that aren't fully grown are thrown back in the sea.

    The young man sits on the side of the boat, opens an oyster and eats it.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
