Blue Points will be VERY limited through August 31, 2014. New Connecticut vibrio regulations require fishermen in Darien, Norwalk, and Westport to harvest, cull, bag, and cool to <50º F within one hour making it very difficult for fishermen to harvest substantial amounts.

Summer 2014
New England Farm and Supply Update

A few months ago, we saw oyster supply tighten like crazy. Now that Canadian farms are not dealing with ice and weather has calmed, oyster supply is improving. For local New England product, though, supply is still very limited because of the growth cycle. As oyster handlers, it's important to understand the nature of our supply. Click below to learn more and see a few updates from the Standish Shore Farm!

NOAA Fisheries scientists will be testing a new probiotic for oysters and if successful, may potentially hit the market in 2 to 3 years. Some oyster seed producers are welcoming the probiotic because it will increase their yield especially in the summer. Interestingly, the probiotic is a strain of Vibrio (OY15) that naturally occurs in the oyster's digestive gland.

Tell us what you think about the use of probiotics.
