Estuary Oysters LLC Overview
Estuary Oysters is an LLC created to initiate the save one of North America’s largest and most bio-diverse estuaries for generations to come, by resurrecting Apalachee Bay’s waters, via “ranching oysters” profitably.
By re-establishing a vibrant water filtration system via “oyster ranching” back into Oyster Bay and Spring Creek, Estuary Oysters LLC will raise millions of hatchery spawned oysters each year, at the surface of the water, in protective cages, that will feed an ever expanding seafood seeking human population, while creating “living wage” jobs for local families, cleaning up and reviving the water for all aquatic flora and fauna, while cultivating the cleanest and tastiest oyster available anywhere on the planet.
- One mature oyster can filter and clean up to 50 gallons of water per day.
- One inch of new oyster bed can offset one foot of storm surge.
- 85% of all natural oyster beds are gone worldwide. (Due to pollution, dredging and draining.)
- All carbon used in creating an oyster shell is safely stored in that shell for eternity.
- Oysters are the environment’s original eco-engineers that create structure for all other species.
- Oysters are one of the most vibrant and productive sources of protein available.
- Estuary Oysters grow faster in its waters then oysters grown anywhere else in the world.
- Estuary Oysters merroir is considered to be superior due to salty-sweet firm-meat combination.
Estuary Oysters are fueled by Spring Creek, the largest freshwater spring in the world, surrounded by over a million acres of pristine National Forests and State Wildlife Preserves.
