Responsible Oystering in the Lowcountry
Coastal Discovery Museum 70 Honey Horn Drive, Hilton Head Island, SC 29926
Join us at the Coastal Discovery Museum, as Andrew Carmines, born and raised on Hilton Head Island, discusses in detail, the process of producing single oysters, from the brood stock, to the hatchery, to the upweller, and ultimately to the consumer. In 2013 Carmines founded the Shell Ring Oyster Company, an environmentally positive Mariculture operation, and Oyster Shellstock Shipper. The process is detailed and heartbreaking at times. Andrew will take the attendees through the process from start to finish, and also answer any questions on where the project is going an what the future holds for oyster farming in the lowcountry.
