Chris Quartuccio shows oyster larvae at the Blue Island Shellfish Farms hatchery!
These young oysters are just weeks old. You can already see the shells forming! Chris Quartuccio shows dozens of them at the Blue Island Shellfish hatchery. These oysters don’t take up much room yet, but they will soon!
