As you explore Whitstable from the past you soon realise that the early industries here, particularly the Oyster fisheries, were extremely efficient in terms of usage of natural resources – so much so that today they would have been regarded as examples of Green management (no pun intended) at its best.
Oysters themselves help purify the sea water as they filtrate it, wind was used to power the yawls, and manual labour used no carbon fuels.
