Shellfish and The Nature Conservancy

From a recent Facebook post:

To grow healthy shellfish, farmers need clean water, robust ecosystems, and a stable climate. This drives many in the industry to prioritize environmental conservation and climate mitigation, both on and off the water.

In 2018, a group of seven U.S. shellfish growers formed a partnership with The Nature Conservancy to create the Shellfish Growers Climate Coalition. Today, we represent more than 250 shellfish businesses from 25 U.S. states and Canada working to advocate for sound climate policy by highlighting how climate change has impacted our lives and livelihoods. In addition to advocacy within the coalition, our members are going the extra mile for the environment in their day-to-day work.
