Pilot Oyster Aquaculture Project

In 2018 we launched our Pilot Oyster Aquaculture Project in Hampton Bays. Working with local commercial oyster farmers including Sebonac Inlet Oyster Farm, Happy Oyster Company, and Deep Black Oyster Company, we currently have over 300,000 oysters growing on our bottomland in Great Peconic Bay! In addition to helping filter our waters (an adult oyster filters 50 gallons of water per day), oyster farming provides sustainable jobs for the east end economy and shellfish farmers are some of our best clean water allies. As these oysters grow to market size, we hope to be able to share them with you at our future events!
