June AHA! Night: An Evening of Oysters

Thursday, June 13 | 7:00-8:00 PM | FHC (38 Bethel Street) | Free Admission

Join FHC and special guest Dr. Dale Leavitt of Blue Stream Shellfish/West Island Oysters for an evening of oysters! The oyster has been a staple in local consumer’s diets for eons. Come learn about the oyster’s history followed by a discussion of modern ways of growing oysters in our region. While you’re here, be sure to pick up your tickets for New Bedford’s first Oysterfest, happening on Saturday, June 15th at Cisco Brewers New Bedford. We promise you’ll have a shuckin’ good time!

From developing diets for lobsters in Maine during the 70s and leading the Sea Grant Extension program at Woods Hole to developing the Shellfish Program at Roger Williams University, Dr. Dale Leavitt is known for his knowledge of bivalves aka oysters. For over four decades, Dr. Leavitt has been immersed in aquaculture. His expertise in the science behind the shuck allows West Island Oysters and Blue Stream Shellfish to raise a superior oyster.
