Sustainable Oysters

Interested in the sustainability of oysters?

Some interesting points from the Seafood Watch Report on Farmed Oysters:

” Farming of oysters accounts for over 95% of total global production of this
bivalve.”

“Because oysters are filter feeders, oyster aquaculture facilities generally improve coastal water
conditions by converting nutrients and organic matter to biomass.”

“Management regimes and codes of conduct have been formed by the shellfish industry and
generally these codes and practices go above and beyond laws governing the culture activity.
Overall, at present, oysters pose substantially less risk to the environment than do other cultured
finfish or crustacean species.
