Santa Barbara Mariculture Company is pioneering new eco-friendly methods in aquaculture to grow shellfish in the nutrient rich waters of the Santa Barbara Channel. These uniquely grown oysters and mussels develop naturally using sustainable techniques that do not deplete any of our valuable ocean resources.

Notice: We are seeking to amend our coastal development permit with the California Coastal Commission. It is important that this amendment passes for the farm to stay in business. Please write a letter of support to the following email address:

Cassidy Teufel

California Coastal Commission

Energy, Ocean Resources and Federal Consistency Division

45 Fremont Street, Suite 2000

San Francisco, CA 94105

Please support us by purchasing our shellfish locally in Santa Barbara and visiting our other website where you will find a selection of beautiful handcrafted greeting cards.
