About Little Wicomico Oyster Co.:

Dr. Lynton Land will demonstrate how an oyster nursery uses larvae from a hatchery to produce marketable oysters. The tour will begin at 125 Airstrip Lane in Ophelia, where Dr. Land produces fertile (diploid) seed oysters for oyster gardeners and for aquaculture. The tour will then move to nearby Cockrell’s Marine Railway, the location of the Little Wicomico Oyster Company (http://www.lwoysters.com) where a much larger operation produces both oysters for the half-shell trade and spat-on-shell for the shucking trade.
