100 Attend MP Oyster Fair at Gwynn's Island

 

We had a great turnout on May 10, 2014 for the Middle Peninsula Spring Oyster Fair. About 100 attended and we packed the Gwynn's Island Civic Center.  Welcome aboard to the 19 new members who joined at the event.  Vendors did a brisk business on spat and equipment.  

 

Mike Congrove of Oyster Seed Holding gave a great educational talk on the science and practice of large-scale production of oyster larvae and seed for the aquaculture industry. He and OSH employees then led tours of their facility on Gwynn's Island.  For more on OSH, please visit www.oysterseedholdings.com.

New and experienced oyster gardeners register for the event at the Gwynn's Island Civic Center.

Mike Congrove of Oyster Seed Holdings explains the life cycle of an oyster and how OSH uses that knowledge in large-scale production of oyster larvae and seed.
