Commercial oyster fisherman Charles King prepairs to pull his aging oyster boat from the rich oystering waters of Apalachicola Bay. The bay was once one of the largest oyster-producing regions in the US but the oyster fishery collapsed in 2012 because of drought, over-fishing and increased salinity in the Apalachicola Bay due to decreased freshwater flow.
