We’re honored to be a part of the growing aquaculture industry in the US. Our small company represents a growing segment in the country’s seafood industry. Working on the water not only provides livelihoods for many local families, including jobs from traditional fishing and crabbing to the innovative process of farming clams and oysters, but the industry also benefits the environment. Aquafarming cultivates a natural, sustainable source of shellfish in controlled conditions that ultimately play an important role in replenishing the marine ecosystem of the Chesapeake Bay.
It’s our goal to continually improve and optimize our production practices while simultaneously preserving the environment in which we’re so lucky to farm. As culturists, it is our responsibility to follow the safest operating practices to ensure the longevity of the Eastern Shore environment and coastal community’s way of life for future generations. That is why we take voluntary measures to preserve water quality, reduce production impact on the environment and practice “good neighbor” efforts, respecting rights of others to appreciate and use the beautiful coastal waters of the Eastern Shore.
