Westhampton Beach Hatchery
The Westhampton Beach Hatchery facility is on a canal in Westhampton Beach. For several decades the facilities business was selling lobster, fish, clams, oyster to both the restaurant and retail customers. Our key asset is a clean saltwater which we pump from a 200 deep saltwater well. This salt water is almost completely bacterium-free saltwater used in the providing sand free shellfish. In 2015, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation permitted us as the shellfish hatchery. Today our principal business is the spawning and growing of oyster seed that we sell to professional oyster Bay farmers.
