In the entryway of Blue Island Shellfish Farms is a guitar signed by the Naked Cowboy himself! The oysters are his namesake, so look for Naked Cowboy oysters on the menu and remember how they got to your plate!

There are two million baby oysters in these tanks at the Blue Island Shellfish hatchery. When they get bigger, they’ll move out to the Blue Island Shellfish Farm. 

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!

The ‘Maternity Ward’ at Blue Island Shellfish farms, where oyster larvae begin their journey. The larvae are smaller than a grain of sand and will look for a place to settle, or cement themselves to a hard substrate, preferably an oyster shell!

On this celebratory occasion, find out the journey two million baby oysters take from maternity ward to the plate at Blue Island Shellfish Farms….with a Naked Cowboy in between! Blue Island Shellfish CEO Chris Quartuccio gave ‘ShellShocked’ director Emily Driscoll a tour of the hatchery.
