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.
