THE FARMS:

Carlsbad Aquafarm – Carlsbad, CA

Owner and diver, John Davis is passionate about sustainable aquaculture:  He believes that every oyster and mussel raised in his 6 acre aquafarm is one less that will be taken from the ocean.  The aquafarm, located in the highly protected Agua Hedionda Lagoon offshore is a green operation that returns water back to the ocean cleaner than when it comes in.  Carlsbad Aquafarm grows and harvests one oyster in two phases, young and mature:  the young oyster is known as “Luna” and the mature: “Blonde”.  Both are delicate and delicious.  The Blonde offering a little more mineral and salt in finish. Their shells are cupped and grow deeper with age, which provides a great vessel for the oysters’ liquor.
