New Reef Oyster Company was originally founded in 2012 with the intention of providing a high-quality oyster, creating water-front jobs, and improving the water of the Gulf Coast estuaries.
Starting with only 12 cages and a 14’ Aluminum Jon Boat, New Reef has since expanded and supplies oysters for a multitude of restaurants across the South.
A single oyster filters up to 50 gallons of water per day. We stock up to two million oysters which spawn and provide structure for a wide range of aquatic species.
New Reef Oyster Company occupies private upland that provides a habitat for numerous marsh and upland wildlife species.
