Oyster tongers on the small boats worked the oyster beds. They sell to buyboats that anchored nearby, looking for the best cash price for their oysters. The oystermen then can return to harvesting oysters. The buyboats transport and sell the oysters at market or to oyster processing houses. The owners of buyboats became the middle man.
