Former oyster wells

At low tide, you can see the remains of the oyster wells along the dyke between Wemeldinge and Kattendijke. Until the mid-twentieth century, oysters were farmed here. In the harsh winter of 1962-1963 most of the oysters died, which put an end to oyster farming on this spot. At low tide, water remains in the wells, allowing Oosterschelde flora and fauna to grow in them.
