The Choptank Oyster Company – Cambridge, Maryland
The Choptank Oyster Company is a thriving oyster hatchery and farm that produces high quality oysters, while also helping to improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay. Traditionally, millions of bushels of oysters have been harvested annually from the waters surrounding Dorchester County, Maryland, up until the 1970’s when harvest numbers began to drop off substantially as a result of over harvesting. However, The Choptank Oyster Company is helping to turn this situation around by culturing and spawning millions of native oysters in the bay at any one time.
