n the Growing Edge of Shellfish Culture
Research & Development
The overall mission of OSH is to be an independent supplier of high-quality shellfish seed serving the entire shellfish aquaculture industry. In support of this mission OSH aims to continue its tradition of innovation as a "tech-forward" hatchery to further “disrupt the norms” of shellfish hatchery operations. R&D at OSH includes internal investigations to improve and innovate commercial production, outside funded projects that push the envelope of technology, and collaborative support to serve as a conduit for research ideas emanating from academic institutions. From recirculating water systems, to studying nuisance bacteria, to innovative growing practices, OSH aims to advance the industry from research to practice.
