Texas Sea Grant has developed a new website dedicated to oyster mariculture (or farming). This new online resource provides information for oyster farmers and oyster enthusiasts alike to learn more about this emerging industry.

The website houses a breadth of oyster information, including a step-by-step guide to the permitting process in Texas, aimed at helping farmers successfully launch their businesses. The site also contains up-to-date information about gear types and techniques, biosecurity, risk management, and more. Additionally, viewers can find accurate information on the nutritional and environmental benefits of oysters, oyster recipes, and the truth behind commonly believed oyster myths.
