Cape Cod Bay, MA.
Raised in one of the country's best oyster growing regions, Blish Points get their quintessential yankee charm from the clean, briny Cape Cod Bay and their quirkiness from the infusion of several freshwater creeks. A deep cup, creamy yet firm meats and a delicately sweet seaweed finish, make Blish a Cape favorite to be savored and celebrated.

David Cranshaw, Veteran of the Sea
This enterprising shellfisherman recognized early on that shellfish aquaculture was the future. He got his start working in New Bedford, Massachusetts, unloading boats and processing the catch. He witnessed overfishing first hand, including the collapse of the cod fishery. Prior to oyster aquaculture, he operated a quahog nursery and farmed them to maturity. He enjoys being on the water (even on rough days) and the solitude and beauty of Cape Cod Bay. “I love making something grow, it’s gratifying."
