I wish it was my haul, but the picture is from a recycling area I found while hiking.
Probably used to put back in oyster beds not really sure what they're used for.

Folks build artificial reefs with the shells - the young oysters (called spat!) prefer to settle on them as a substrate. In large numbers, the oysters help clean the water like millions of filters.
