The Consortium recently launched a Shellfish Aquaculture Toolkit to offer products and resources to current shellfish growers and people who are interested in entering the industry.

The kit includes the 32-page South Carolina Aquaculture Permitting Guide, facts sheets about the mariculture seed purchase process and financial resources, a cage flipping economics tool, an oyster farming budget tool, and a link to the S.C. Department of Natural Resources’ shellfish harvesting locations and regulations.
