Located in mid-coast Maine, Muscongus Bay Aquaculture comprises a shellfish hatchery, nursery and two farms. At our hatchery, on the Medomak River, we have been producing high-quality, fast-growing, and disease-resistant shellfish seed for growers up and down the east coast for over 20 years.

At the nursery, in our 8 floating upwellers, oyster spat grow from less than 1mm to over 9mm. We clean, grade, and package them to be sent to farms up and down the East Coast.

A portion of that seed is set aside and sent to our own farms on the Damariscotta River. This is where we raise our renowned and beloved Wawenauk and Dodge Cove Pemaquid oysters to market size.

Our crew of highly experienced, enthusiastic, and friendly staff are dedicated to ensuring a reliable supply of the best products available in the shellfish world.

Seasonal jobs offered: Yes We offer both seasonal and full-time positions, depending on the season!
Internship Program: Yes Muscongus Bay hires seasonal interns to work on our nursery site. This is a paid internship and we are also willing to work with the students college to get them credit for the internship.
Entry level positions: Yes We offer a safe and comfortable platform for entry level positions to learn the ropes of aquaculture.
