CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS

Adult oysters cleanse the Chesapeake Bay as they have the capability of filtering 50 gallons of water per day. By planting millions of farm raised oysters into the bay, we provide a sustainable food for consumption while allowing the wild oyster to thrive in its natural habitat.


Our company is dedicated to providing seed, equipment and knowledge to all our friends of the bay. Our focus in these three areas aid in the revitalization of the Chesapeake Bay and re-establish the bay oyster as a premium sustainable food source.

**This tool is only recommendation. Every farm is different and actual growth varies year to year and is dependent on many different variables including, temperature, salinity, food availability and overall water quality. For specific questions and further information, please contact us.


Why buy equipment? The initial investment of purchasing nursery equipment will quickly pay for its self when compared to purchasing 1/2" seed ready to go in cages. For example, the market price for 1/2" seed is $23,000.00 / million on average compared to $6,500.00 / million on average for 1 mm seed. The initial investment in one of our Upweller tanks and FLUPSY's will pay for itself in one season. Use the equipment calculator above to estimate the amount of nursery needed to efficiently grow out seed.
