The Conscience Point Shellfish Hatchery

In recent years, Conscience Point has become a lively hub of maritime activity. Adjacent to the Conscience Point Historic Site and Nature Walk, the Shellfish Hatchery is located on land on North Sea Harbor owned by the Southampton History Museum. Established less than a decade ago to establish aquaculture as productive and sustainable in town waters, it has been remarkably successful, farming millions of oysters and educating the public on the importance of shellfish ecology. How have they done it? Join Mark Matthews for a fascinating tour of the Hatchery and find out.
