Carlsbad Aquafarm cultivates Mediterranean Blue Mussels, Pacific Oysters and Ogo. The company has been in operation since 1990 in Carlsbad. The farm has developed a secondary line of products for the marine aquaria trade known as “live-feed” that includes micro- and macro algae, copepods, amphipods and brine shrimp.
The farm uses sustainable suspended long-line cultivation methods that cause minimal impact on marine habitat, wild fish populations, water quality and the marine environment. Rigorous laboratory testing standards and ultra-violet purification systems help ensure product safety while close proximity to the LA and San Diego allow quick turn-around from harvest to delivery for our local clients in Southern California. The result is fresh, high quality products with a small carbon footprint.
Carlsbad Aquafarm is committed to sustainable mariculture and pursuing a necessary balance between the demand for responsible seafood production and the preservation of our oceans’ resources.
