For years Hog Island had sought a secondary growing location. A “don’t keep all your eggs in one basket” approach to oyster farming. However, finding just the right place required careful consideration. Water quality, of topmost importance, had to be pristine. Growing conditions had to meet oyster production demands. And, finally, responsible personnel to manage the farm had to be readily available. After much searching, and weighing options, Hog Island found a location that had it all - Discovery Bay, WA.
