Oyster farming and the culture that accompanies it is the heartbeat of Oyster South. Our mission is to cultivate a South that encourages and includes successful farms, healthy waters and the birth of new traditions.

Education is the cornerstone of Oyster South’s ability to achieve this mission. We must educate each other, our partners, and the general public on the significance of regional oyster farms. In addition, Oyster South is a celebration of Southern oysters and an opportunity to raise funds so that we can improve access to training and grants.
