Lost Coast Oyster Company
We are a husband and wife duo growing Tampa Bay's first sustainable oyster farm, our signature 'LoCos,' in the pristine waters of the Terra Ceia Aquatic Preserve. We recognized that there was a significant deficit in the availability of locally sourced oysters throughout the state, a curious conundrum given the sheer abundance of habitat available for oyster culture. Decades of overharvesting, habitat loss, saltwater intrusion, and the BP oil spill have nearly rendered the wild-harvest oyster fishery in the state of Florida extinct. The Lost Coast Oyster Company aims to revitalize the lost industry along Florida's Gulf Coast and become a leader in sustainable aquaculture practices. By utilizing innovative off-bottom farming techniques we produce high-quality boutique oysters destined for the premium half-shell market. The Lost Coast Oyster Company's ultimate goal is to create a locally-sourced sustainable product that preserves Florida's unique environments while reinvigorating and promoting the restoration and enhancement of our natural estuarine systems.
