At J&W Seafood we feel that we must do our part in bringing sustainability to the seafood industry. J&W Seafood has implemented a spat on shell program to offset harvesting of our natural strike oysters. This process involves bagging shucked oyster shells and introducing larvae into a controlled environment. Once the larva attaches to the shell the bags are cut and released onto our designated private beds. We are experiencing tremendous success with this sustainable method.
