Sweden’s only female oyster diver finds calm at sea

On a small boat nosing its way through the frozen waters of the Grebbestad archipelago on Sweden's west coast, Lotta Klemming scans the mist-covered rocks for the perfect spot to find a local delicacy. After years working in the fashion industry in Sweden, Klemming returned to her home village and took up the family business -- a trade she never saw herself working in -- diving for oysters to sell to restaurants in Gothenburg and Stockholm, finding not only a new livelihood but a sense of calm and fulfilment.
