Sustainably grown and naturally delicious shellfish


Bay Enterprises Limited, founded in 1974, is owned by the Purdy family, who began growing oysters in Malagash, Nova Scotia, in 1867.  The Purdy family believes in the sustainable production of oysters and quahogs using traditional and modern methods that protect the ecology of the area and provide a safe, nutritious and delicious product.
