Our hatcheries utilize best practices in humane husbandry. We expertly manage the growth cycle of our oysters, clams, mussels, and steelhead in healthy, controlled environments. We are the only company in North America with an SQF Level III certification in shellfish.

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.
