About Sconticut Neck Oysters

Harvest location: Jack’s Cove in Nasketucket Bay in Fairhaven, MA

How they’re grown: Matt purchases his seed from a hatchery in Maine. He uses floating gear which helps deal with predatorial problems that can be found on the ocean floor. He sinks the floating gear to the ocean floor in the winter to protect the oysters from ice. It takes around 18-20 months to reach market size.

Why they’re unique: 
Matt Loo is the only farmer in this area. Starting his farm was a 2-year process where the Town of Fairhaven, the state’s Division of Marine Fisheries, the Army. Corps of Engineers, the Coast Guard and three Native American tribes had to be consulted before he was given his grant. Whew! In 2012, he officially started his farm. He has grown from 1 acre to 3.

Matt has loved aquaculture since his Environmental Science in High School. During high school he found himself assisting the local shellfish warden running an upweller to grow Quahogs. Post high school, he attended the University of Rhode Island where he received in a degree in fisheries and aquaculture. He spent several post-college years in Alaska trapping and growing sockeye salmon, but soon he knew he had to come back home. The Fairhaven waters are a challenging place to grow oysters but he has seen his hard labor pay off. He is also a new Dad, so we hope to see a second generation oyster farmer in the works!

Oyster FAQ

How long do my oysters keep?

Your oysters keep in the refrigerator for 5-7 days!  You can order a day or two early to make sure you have them in time for your gathering.  They are totally fine hangin’ out in the cool air.  

How do I store these bad boys?

When you receive your package, pull them out of the box (these guys need a little fresh air!). Grab a mixing bowl and throw the mesh bag in the bowl so that the oysters don’t leak all over your refrigerator. Grab a damp cloth and throw the cloth over the bowl.  You are good to go for the next 5-7 days. Doesn’t hurt to dampen the cloth each day to keep them moist and chilled.

Should I keep them on ice?

Only put the oysters on ice before service.  The oysters will actually die in the melted fresh water so do not store the oysters on ice.  They will not like this.

How are they shipped?

We ship using FedEx Overnight service. You will receive tracking info after the label has been printed the day before your oysters are set to arrive.  We do not require a signature – Fedex will leave your package at your doorstep.
