American Mussel Harvesters

About Us

In 1986 we had one phone, one truck, one mussel boat and a home on the docks. We also had a few core ideas:

  • To deliver the freshest live shellfish every day
  • To always guarantee everything we sell
  • To bring innovations to the shellfish industry
  • To always work in an atmosphere of anima mundi (Thomas Moore's concept of living a soulful ecology which Howell Raines defines as "the oceanic common memory of mankind")
  • To have fun doing what we do

Today we are one of the largest producers of mussels in North America, and we have integrated oysters and clams into our harvests. Additionally, we have strategic alliances with independent shellfish farmers, who focus on growing and leave the marketing to us. We specialize in authentic brands of Restaurant Ready® live shellfish.

Our satisfied customers, the variety of our live shellfish, our Restaurant Ready® process, and our daily shipments are the hallmarks of our success. We are here to help you with all of your shellfish needs.
