Shellfish play a vital role in the environment, culture, and economy of the Pacific Coast. First harvested by Northwest tribes thousands of years ago, shellfish have been farmed commercially for more than 150 years.
Most shellfish farms are small family businesses that date back generations. Through their hard work and commitment to excellence, this region has become the largest producer of farmed shellfish in the nation. And because shellfish thrive in pure, clean water, our growers are dedicated to protecting the marine environment.
Farmed shellfish. A delicious, healthy, sustainable resource that enriches our environment, our culture, and our economy. We invite you to learn more about our extraordinary shellfish and the people who grow them.
