On July 31, Drakes Bay Oyster Company was forced to close by the National Parks Services and Department of the Interior. The last oyster cannery in California, Drakes is now only able to continue harvesting oysters for sale in the wholesale market. The shuckers and packers, some that had been with the company for 30 years, lost their jobs when the shucking and packing builkding was lifted from the ground and put onto a trailer for removal.
