How are they are doing it?
Floating Bags — They employ a floating bag system to culture their oysters. This growing method allows for ultimate control and crop management.
Spat — (aka juvenile oysters) are spawned at a nursery before they are stocked at the farm.
Stock – Hundreds of thousands of fingernail-sized oyster are stocked in floating bags, providing them with an ideal environment.
Grow – With each oyster filtering upwards of 50 gallons of water per day, these little guys consume microscopic algae, causing an explosion of growth.
Sort – To eliminate crowding and provide adequate space for growth, the babies are gradually sorted into larger bags.
Tumble – Wind and wave action naturally tumble the oysters, encouraging a deep cup and firmly textured meat.
Finally, HARVEST! When the oysters reach the magical 3:2:1 size ratio, they are ready to harvest and sold to market and savored.
