Virginia Aquaculture – Seafood’s Answer to Freshness

Aquaculture, right in VirginiaAquaculture is the raising and harvesting of fresh and saltwater plants and animals. This is a growing industry in Virginia, including right in Vienna. Aquaculture farms thrive in Virginia because this great state made a sound business decision in the 1900′s to offer ten-year, renewable, oyster bottom leases–at a nominal rate–to private growers.

Clams are perfect candidates for Aquaculture. If clams are harvested in the morning, they can be on your dinner table or at your favorite seafood restaurant within a 24-hour period. This is possible because the largest producer of farm-raised, hard-shell littlenecks in the United States, Ballard Fish & Oyster Co., is harvesting those little jewels all along Virginia’s Eastern Shore.

Aquaculture in Virginia is not limited to clams. Bass, trout, catfish and prawns are among some of the other varieties of seafood that are raised and harvested according to the dynamics of Aquaculture. Aquaculture is responsible for Virginia having the distinction of producing and serving the freshest seafood possible.

Having lived and worked in Virginia as a top Realtor, I would personally like to acknowledge the fact that Aquaculture, along with fantastic chefs, is one of the reasons Virginia has some of the best seafood restaurants in the country. Don’t feel like checking out one of these fine restaurants any time soon? No problem, you can order your Aquaculture raised seafood from the convenience of your own home.
