our story

The Lost Coast Oyster Company was founded in response to the  widespread failure of the wild-harvest oyster fishery throughout the state of Florida.  Saltwater intrusion, nutrient deposition, the BP oil spill, and other environmental factors left a significant shortage of oysters throughout the state.  Several trips to Cedar Key, one of Florida's last working waterfront commmunities, kindled an interest in innovative off-bottom farming techniques being applied along the Gulf Coast.  By applying the latest research and technologies, the Lost Coast Oyster Company aims to become an industry leader in sustainable aquaculture along Florida's Gulf Coast, providing a fresh product from our farm delivered straight to your table.
