We've made films about hunting pigs and squirrels, about fishing for trout and diving for sea urchin, and we've seen the farming of many different types of animals for food. This episode is about NOT eating meat.
Sometimes (often) our videos are about what I'm in the mood to eat. Such was the case in this all short trip we took along the Rappahannock River. It was just long enough to give you a look into the sustainability of oysters.
