Tyler Myers is one of Gulf Coast Oyster Farmers. He is the founder of Massacre Island Oyster Ranch on the west end of Dauphin Island, Alabama. When we went to meet Tyler, he and his father were waiting, smiling and waving, as we turned into their driveway (basically the beach). They look like Alberto Giacometti sculptures. We got to know each other over coffee at the “farmhouse”, an amazing summer house on stilts, before taking the short walk to the beach. The oyster “office” is a designated wooden table, and there are cages floating in the water waiting to be turned or dragged to the office. This is where Tyler’s Oyster Story begins, and it’s best to let him tell you: “About Massacre Island Oyster Ranch”.
