Water from a high tide laps at the Drakes Bay Oyster Company's shack in Inverness, California, November 29, 2012. The U.S. government sided with environmental groups on Thursday with its decision to shut down a Northern California oyster farm in an attempt to restore wilderness. Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar said he would not renew the lease for the weatherbeaten shacks, oyster shell mounds and waterlogged docks that make up Drakes Bay Oyster Company. REUTERS/Noah Berger
