Duxbury: Oysters Offered, Ideas Solicited at Island Creek Oysters Open House

Island Creek Oysters of Duxbury introduced mollusk aquaculture to Massachusetts a decade ago. Now they’ve taken another gamble by purchasing the former Battelle Labs property in Snug Harbor. They have immediate uses for the dock and bayside buildings. They need to rent out the office space closer to the street. Battelle operated as a non-profit and didn’t need commercial zoning. Island Creek is a business and has proposed a zoning change. They invited neighbors in Wednesday night, offered oysters and solicited ideas.

WATD’s Charles Mathewson spoke with Island Creek president Chris Sherman.
