Story: Chris Warner has a long history as a fisherman (32 years!), but like the industry, he has evolved and adapted along with the changes. He started out dragging when he was only 15, worked on a big steel, shrimping vessel, and even spent time harvesting wild sea urchins. But in an effort to improve extractive fishing practices, he had finally landed in the business of oyster farming. It incorporates all the things he loves, and at the end of the day, he is only taking out of the ocean what he puts in. Therefore having close to zero impact on the natural ecosystem of Maine waters. For those of you who love his Ocean Kiss oysters, you be excited to try this latest oyster!
