Caption: Farmed oysters. Bags of oysters ready to be moved from an oyster farm. Oysters are shelled molluscs that are a highly prized delicacy. Large amounts of seaweed and other algae are seen growing on the bags. Some algae produce harmful toxins that can poison humans if seafood is contaminated. Effects range from diarrhoea to paralysis by neurotoxins. Photographed in Brittany, France.
