Ossegor, Near Bayonne. A natural tidal lake fed and drained by a shallow, swift-running creek
The water is sufficiently deep to allow the cases to be rarely exposed. Oyster growth is extremely rapid; an instance of half an inch of shell growth in a month is recorded. Cases are naturally covered with filamentous sea salad, ulva, which protects the oyster against light and heat and gives attachment and shelter to the rapidly growing oyster food
