Welcome to the BC Shellfish Grower’s Association, home of the oyster growing capital of Canada!

We are proud to offer information about the shellfish farming industry in British Columbia, from how we grow our products to our association and the people involved.

Our farmers rely on a healthy environment and have been considered stewards of the oceans for over 100 years in BC. The cool, pristine, nutrient-rich coastal waters of BC’s vast coastline (over 27,000km) provide the perfect location to grow some of the highest quality shellfish that can be found on menu’s throughout the world.

Our sustainable industry provides over 1,000 full-time jobs in rural and coastal communities and is an economic driver accounting for over $33 million in farm gate sales yearly.

We also  offer a daily news feed about world aquaculture developments in our NEWS TODAY header so stay in the loop!
