Seafood for your Belly
In 2010, NONESUCH began as a tiny oyster farm in a nature conservancy in Scarborough, Maine, just south of Portland. Today we are an award-winning company and our oysters are in select, food-worshiping restaurants across the country!
Seafood begins with Sea Water
The future of our seafood lies in our back yards. Nobody is too far away to be concerned. The watershed for the Gulf of Maine extends into Canada. Good gardening and healthy lifestyle practices can keep our marine environment safe, healthy, and productive.
These two oysters are of the same species. The seed was purchased from the same hatchery. They are the same age. They were both grown on our farm. We call the one on the left an Abigail Pearl and the one on the right a Nonesuch Emerald. What is different is that they were grown in different places in the water column: in suspended gear and free range on the bottom. At low tide that represents very little difference. But small changes in the marine environment have huge ramifications for what's living there. We must take great care.
