On this installment of The Shellfish Series we welcome Rob Garrison to the show. Rob's name kept coming up at the top of our list of guests who could really shed some light on the early years of aquaculture on the island. Him and Martin Ceely were the founding partners of the first oyster farm on Nantucket in the 1980's, and Rob was also integral in developing and constructing the first generation of the shellfish hatchery on Brant Point.
Rob really takes the lead in talking about the early days on this topic and has some great stories mixed in as well. I'm really excited to now have this information on record and to be sharing it with you all. Also joining the conversation is my colleague Renee Ceely who really established this connection and also our friend Samantha Denette from the Nantucket Shellfish Association.
Many thanks to all who helped on this and I hope you enjoy!
