Keep Local With Whidbey: Farming Shellfish in Penn Cove

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Oak Harbor Library


Penn Cove is home to the oldest commercial mussel farm in North America and produces such tasty mussels they are known across the country. 

In this program, Zane Malloy, Farms Manager for Penn Cove Shellfish, will talk about the life-cycle of the mussel at the farm, from the initial seeding process through planting, thinning and maturation, to harvesting and distribution. You will also learn why the waters around Penn Cove provide such a great environment for shellfish, and how mussel farming enhances and adds to the overall health of the marine environment.
