On April 26, 2017 at 3 p.m., the Coastal Discovery Museum will host Andrew Carmines, the general manager of Hudson’s Seafood Restaurant who is a native of the Lowcountry. His broad interest led him to develop the Shell Ring Oyster Company in 2013, an environmentally positive Mariculture operation, and Oyster Shellstock Shipper.
Carmines will discuss in detail the process of producing single oysters from the brood stock, to the hatchery, to the upweller, and ultimately to the consumer. The process is detailed and heartbreaking at times. He will take the attendees through the process from start to finish, and also answer any questions on where the project is going and what the future holds for Oyster Farming in the Lowcountry.
This presentation is $7 per person (for ages 12 and older please) and reservations are required. For more information or to obtain tickets, call the Coastal Discovery Museum at (843) 689-6767 ext. 223.
