International Oyster Co., Ltd grants Kanamatsu Kanazawa power of attorney in connection to its dealings with Padilla Oyster Beds and Padilla Point Oyster Company. Kanazawa helped to start the oyster business in the Pacific Northwest when he learned that the cooler waters accelerated the growth of oysters. Oysters grown in the Pacific Northwest could reach commercial selling size in half the time.
