Carlsbad Aquafarm is Southern California’s only shellfish aquafarm. Since 1990, owner and president John Davis, along with co-owner Acacia Pacific Investments, have been growing eco-friendly Carlsbad Mediterranean Mussel, Carlsbad Luna Oyster - petite, Carlsbad Blonde Oyster - small, Carlsbad Del Sol Oyster - small and fresh water immersed, Carlsbad Speckled Scallop, Carlsbad Green Abalone, and Carlsbad Red Ogo Seaweed, in the unspoiled Pacific Ocean waters of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon in Carlsbad, California. The farm has since developed a secondary line of products for the marine aquarium trade known as “live-feed” that includes micro and macro algae, copepods, amphipods, and brine shrimp. Both product lines allow the farm efficient use of its facilities, marine biologists and harvest crew, and reusable growout systems. Suspended long-line cultivation and shore-based recirculating seawater tanks have minimal impact on marine habitats, wild fish populations, water quality, and the community. Rigorous laboratory testing and purification systems keep products safe while close proximity to the Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas and major airports allow the farm a quick turn-around from harvest to shipping and delivery. The result is fresh, high quality local products with a small carbon footprint. Carlsbad Aquafarm is committed to sustainable farming and pursuing a necessary balance between the demand for responsible seafood production and the preservation of our oceans’ resources. You can find their product in farmers markets: Hollywood, Santa Monica (Wed., Sat., and Sun.), Hillcrest, and Carlsbad
