Welcome to Nomini Bay Oyster Ranch, where the journey from our waters to your table ensures a remarkable oyster experience.
Our secret lies in cultivating farm-raised triploid oysters that cannot reproduce. By diverting their energy towards growth instead of reproduction, we ensure exceptional quality.
Starting as 1-2mm specks resembling grains of sand, the seeds are nurtured in our nursery tank. Here, water flows through the tank, allowing the oysters to filter and feed on algae. The filtered water is then returned to the bay. Throughout this stage, our oysters are diligently cleaned three times a day.
The more food the oysters receive, the faster they grow. As they reach just over a half inch in size, we relocate them to half-inch cages in the open waters. Upon reaching one inch, they graduate to one-inch cages, facilitating enhanced water circulation. Regular cleaning, sorting, and re-caging are undertaken to prevent overcrowding and promote continuous growth.
Our ambition is to expand to 5 million in the coming years. We encourage guests to visit our ranch and witness our oyster farming in action.
