ShanDaph oysters is the only solar powered oyster farm in Atlantic Canada.
ShanDaph Oysters was established in May of 1999, but its roots reach back over thirty years.Owner/Operator Philip Docker’s grandparents helped to reestablish the growing and the harvesting of oysters on the pristine shores of Big Island, Nova Scotia. Over the decades, the native oyster seed they set in the 1960s and 1970s has matured into productive oyster beds. ShanDaphs are housed in growout units suspended in a water column, where they feed on the nutrient-rich waters of the ShanDaph farm. By completing the growth process suspended in the rich tidal waters of Big Island, ShanDaph ensures optimum growth conditions from the time they are set at less than a millimeter in size, to harvest at over 76 millimeters in size. The total process takes between three to five years.
D’Eon Oyster Company is a family business who manages 50 acres of oyster growing space. Each oyster is grown on the surface of the water with floating culture technology. Once the product reaches market size it is brought to their state of the art off-grid processing barge. This barge is completely run off of solar energy and uses vision grading technology to size each oyster
From there the oysters are brought into a controlled wet storage system to validate quality. Each oyster is then hand packed by experienced employees in a federally registered processing facility which allows for worldwide shipping.
Farming oysters is a labour of love for D’Eon Oyster Company and you can often find that we challenge traditional harvesting methods with an innovative approach to set the standard for the future of shellfish aquaculture.
