We see a Mother Oyster that has yielded 1,500,000 offspring last season, and see some of them being gathered.
Titles read: "Mother of 1,500,000 Babies! (But, mum as an oyster). Uncle Sam's Research Expert explains a few points on the oyster."

A man in a white coat sitting at a microscope shows us a Mother Oyster that yielded 1,500,000 offspring last season. We then see various shots of men gathering oysters at sea with a dredger, and other men sorting the oysters on shore. A man sitting on the quayside tells another man how many oysters he has eaten over the years and says he and another man ate a whole basket of oysters between them once, after supper!
