Santa Barbara Mariculture Company is pioneering new eco-friendly methods in aquaculture to grow shellfish in the nutrient rich waters of the Santa Barbara Channel.  We are also working in tandem with the State of California to allow for the development of offshore shellfish farms using sustainable techniques that do not deplete any of our valuable ocean resources.
