EBB AND FLOW: A Japanese family, an oyster and how they influenced the Pacific NW shellfish history
Ebb and Flow follows Jerry (Eiichi) Yamashita’s recounting of the family history around a campfire next to his shellfish tenure. The personal story spans the early days of the shellfish industry, the decline of the native oyster and his family’s role in introducing Pacific oyster culture to west coast aquaculture. The movie depicts the history of oyster farming on the West Coast, gives a glimpse of a larger community of people working together to hold onto healthy shellfish resources and recognizes the Jerry Yamashita for his role in helping to save the shellfish farming industry from collapse in the 1930s.
