    Stave Island Deep Water Oysters

    Oysters Grown in the Deep Waters of Frenchman Bay.

    Maine is also an amazing place to grow oysters! Most oysters are farmed in shallow water either using floating gear or on the sea/river bottom. Our oysters are gown suspended in over 100' of water. This produces exceptionally sweet oysters with an amazingly clean flavor. Since they are not grown on the bottom they avoid fouling, and being grown in deep water means no surface gear or wasted labor and energy to constantly clean and tumble the growing oysters.This growing method has the additional benefit of not having surface gear thus preserving the scenic beauty of our amazing farm.

    Our Company

    'Springtide' in old English means 'springtime'. This is harvest season for the seaweed crop. A spring tide is also the time when the tide "springs forth" during the new and full moon, giving us the highest and lowest tides of the month.

    Springtide Seaweed operates the largest organic seaweed farm in North America in Downeast Maine, cultivating some of the finest seaweeds in the world for people and the planet. We also operate a state of the art USDA Organic seaweed nursery and processing facility in Gouldsboro, Maine.
