The First and Only BAP Four-Star Oysters in the World!
Four-star is the highest designation in the BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) third-party certification program. For “fed” species, four-star signifies that a product originated from a BAP-certified processing plant, was sourced from a BAP-certified farm, and has utilized seed (larvae) and feed (algae) from BAP-certified hatcheries. BAP’s mollusk farm standards contain many specifications for responsible stocking rates and monitoring of natural feeding processes. Pacific Seafood’s BAP-certified oyster processing plants and farms are in South Bend, Wash., and Eureka, Cali., while the state-of-the-art BAP-certified oyster hatchery is in Quilcene, Wash. We employ up to 115 oyster shuckers per shift, depending on the season.
