At the mercy of the wind

At the mercy of the wind

This week's weather conditions:

This week the Leeward Islands were reach by a cloudy and very windy weather. Indeed we had a very strong wind coming from the south-east and reaching 20 knots with gusts up to 30 knots (60km / h). It's a seasonal wind, corresponding to the trade winds in the southern hemisphere. This wind, which remained very strong for 5 days, brought some showers and dropped down the temperature, but it also caused a very unpleasant swell for navigation, even in the lagoon. The very close waves, reaching 1m high, have made the water very cloudy.

Their influences on production:

 So it was not an appropriate time to graft or harvest. Like all farmers and ranchers, our farm is highly dependent on nature and climate. Especially here, we make sure to harvest or graft when the best conditions for oysters are together. A strong swell after the graft isn't recommended for pearl oysters. Indeed, the swell may agitate the oysters cause the rejection of the nucleus. In addition, this weather makes the work of divers even more difficult. They already dive in apnea up to 6 to 12 m deep and must bring the baskets containing the oysters to the surface.

That's why we decided to stop the harvest and wait for the conditions to become favorable again.

In the meantime, we are dedicating ourselves to developing jewelry with the pearls already harvested last week.
