About Chatham Oysters

Chatham Shellfish Company has been cultivating Chatham Oysters on its lease site since 1976. The well known east coast oyster with year round availability has captivated the oyster aficionado’s attention for decades in local, regional and national markets the last 40 years.

Available in a “regular” grade half shell market at 3 to 4 inches shell length, “petite” grade for the metropolitan half shell market at 2.5 to 2.75 inches and finally the “Golden Gorilla” grade for stews, roasts and frying at 5 plus inches these things are awesome plump oysters worth their weight in gold. These grades of the Chatham Oyster are selected for their deep cup, round shape with a plump and rich meat.

The History of Chatham Shellfish Co.

Begun in 1976, Chatham Shellfish Company has been a revitalizing force of aquaculture in the region. Revisiting techniques of old, when oyster grants lined the Oyster River and Oyster Pond, and incorporating genuinely self-made technology we’ve forged a successful modern day shellfish farming venture.

Chatham Maritime

Chatham Massachusetts lies on the elbow of Cape Cod. The influence of the cold rich waters of the north Atlantic to the east and the waters of Nantucket Sound to the south and west results in a generously rich environment of fish and shellfish habitat. Chatham Shellfish Company has the fortune of cultivating oysters in its environs to produce Cape Cods most desirable oysters.
