Spindrift Oysters, Water Warriors

Spindrift Oysters is a family owned operation started in 2015. It's a labor of love for the Jusseaume family and as grower, Toph Jusseaume likes to say, there's a lot of labor!  Oyster farming is no easy job, but Toph sets out every day to take care of the baby Spindrift Oysters, so he can share a little bit of Westport with the rest of the world. Born in Westport, Toph is excited to earn a living on a river that he's fished and played in all his life.

The Gritty Details:

Oysters are purchased at 8mm - 10mm and raised in a rack and bag system until they are large enough to transfer to cages and trays. Toph's farm has a deep water area and a shallower area. He uses trays in the shallow area and bottom cages in the deeper water. 

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: 2.7% - 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: 8-10 ft tides
  3. Bottom Makeup: Clean sandy bottom, Large thatch beds.
