THE HARVEST

FILMed by zach dauth

Tag along for a quality shuck with the #ShellRaisers of Barrier Island Oyster Co. We road-trip to the southern shores of Wadmalaw Island, SC to see first-hand what goes into sustainably harvesting commercial-grade oysters from seed to market-size. Their restorative growing method (see floating cages) for these keystone species not only keeps the local ecosystem at the top of its game, but is able to satiate the wet palates up + down the eastern seaboard.

If you’re hearing the siren call of tide-tumbled oysters being washed + sorted, find yourself a meaty one, shuck it open + slurp it raw. Let the clean brininess of a Sea Cloud straight off the boat, hulled from the mystic marshes, wash over you. Pause. Reflect. Get back to work. Harvest day comes but only once a week. Put on your deck boots + grab a shucking knife ~ these Lowcountry waterways don’t pause for nobody. BM

Cool Stuff Coming soon ~

Diving with Seadogs

SEA LIFE + SUSTAINABILITY

We head to Jupiter to track down international man of mystery, shark handler + nature photographer, Tannerunderwater. Really, the man needs no introduction ~ he just needs to figure out how to keep his Casio watch face from cracking every time it comes in contact with a tooth looking for a fish head in hand. Time to suit up + see how addicting diving with ocean’s apex predators is.

Postcards from Palo Verde

SURF + SUSTAINABILITY

We’ll be heading to the undeveloped, rugged coastline of El Zonte for a briefing on sustainability, wellness + the surf culture of El Salvador. Palo Verde Sustainable Hotel puts the environment first with a not-too-shabby view of left-hand peelers just a few leashed steps away.

Big Clam Energy

FISH + FORAGE

This brother + sister power team are 5th-generation clam farmers from the “Old Florida” waterways of Cedar Key. Aquaculture is alive + well here, which means buckets of the salubrious saltwater superfood: clams. This is Big Moon Sea Farm. You may be surprised by the health-giving powers of these molluscan shellfish to the human body + ecosystem. Nature is pretty cool.
