Tour An Oyster Farm Prevent Improper Shark Wrangling on the Cape

Tour a Cape Cod Oyster Farm On August 26

 Oyster Farm Tour

Join MOP on Sunday, August 26th from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM in Dennis, MA as we tour Big Rock Oyster Company's oyster farm.  At low tide we will walk out to the farm and learn all about oyster farming.  Farm owner, Aaron Brochu and his staff will be there to provide an overview of the operation and answer your questions.  Each person will receive half a dozen oysters to sample.  Additional oysters will be available for purchase. 

The cost is $25 per person and advanced registration is required through the MOP Store.  Once registered you will receive the location of the meeting spot.  We will leave the meeting spot promptly at 12:00 PM to head a few miles by car to the farm. Space is limited to 30 people.

Prevent Shark Wrangling on the Cape

One of our Board Members is also active in shark preservation. Ben has learned that the History Channel’s “Shark Wranglers” are headed for the waters off Cape Cod.  He supports the tagging efforts DMF has been conducting since 2009, but does not support the controversial methods used by the Shark Wranglers that pose risks to the protected sharks, and his group is advocating against their operating in our local waters.

Please take a moment to read the petition letter, and if you agree, sign.
