In a separate pot put the shrimp, oysters, tomatoes and tomato juice with 1 1/2 quarts of fish stock and bring to a boil. Let it boil for a minute, then add to the first pot. In a small skillet, cook the butter and flour together until brown. Blend this brown roux with the file and some of the gumbo liquid and add to the gumbo. Add the salt and pepper and cayenne to taste. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours. To serve, pour 1 1/2 cups of gumbo over 1/2 cup of rice.
