Edmund Janiunas's Sweet Oyster Company

I received my start in Shellfish Aquaculture by taking care of the shellfish nursery with the Department of Natural Resources for their recreational shellfish program. We were able to re-institute a recreational oyster season for the first time in 35 years! Being an oyster grower is a true privilege, which I love immensely. There are many and constant challenges, but when I look at the final product there is a certain inexplicable proudness that is our true reward. A sustainable delicious food product which helps keep our waters pristine...What's not to love!"

The Gritty Details:

10mm seed is moved from bags to floating cages where they are subjected to constant tidal action during the final grow out. When markets are ready, they are placed in wide, flat-bottom cages submerged underwater. Time to market: 19 - 21 months

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: 3.1% < 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: 5-6 ft. tidal range from Nantucket Sound and Hyannis Harbor
  3. Bottom Makeup: Clean sandy bottom of fine black and brown sand
