Wellfleet Region, Coveted Oysters for Centuries
Wellfleet Oysters were almost a thing of extinction in the 1800s due to overfishing and disease. But a resurgence in aquaculture replenished this population of sweet oysters and farmers continue to grow and protect them today. Now, this centuries-old oyster mecca produces some of the most coveted oysters known to connoisseurs.
The Gritty Details:
Oyster seed is placed in fine mesh bags on racks, then moved to larger mesh as it grows. Time to market: 2 years.
