Damariscotta River Oysters - American Oysters

The Damariscorra River is a tidal estuary - a body of water that is a combination of both salt and fresh water.

shucking an oyster

Oysters are mollusks (also called bivalve), which is a type of shellfish with a soft body inside hard shells connected by a hinge.

plate of oysters with sauce

Oysters live on the ocean floor and siphon seawater into their bodies and filter out algae for food. They can filter up to 4 gallons of water per hour.
1 serving of oysters has 3 times more iron than a serving of beef or chicken.

Our oysters start life at Muscongus Bay Aquaculture Hatchery. The "seed" oysters are then moved to screened containers that float and finally to larger floating bags to grow for approximately two years or until they are ready to be harvested.
