We're a mom and pop shop connecting local people with local seafood since 2010.
We're Pat and Jenny Ross. We started out in seafood in 2010, as the first to grow oysters in our hometown of Bourne MA in over 50 years. It was a side hustle at the time, and we spent years perfecting our technique in pursuit of the oyster we felt best captured the imitable qualities of Buzzards Bay. We built our own gear, and built a sustainable system of aquaculture - using solar and wind power.
We sold our oysters to a select few restaurants, and as we were just starting to expand, the pandemic hit. We pivoted quickly to build a controlled wholesale facility in our basement, and became seafood dealers, shucking oysters from our farm as well as area farms at farmer's markets and events. We also began to source and sell frozen local seafood at farmer's markets.
We were operating as a mobile business with a food truck for about a year and a half, before it made sense to look for a brick and mortar location. Right at that time, Cataumet Fish was for sale. We jumped at the opportunity in 2021, taking a seafood institution that was in business for 40 years into it's 5th decade, with our focus on local seafood, and specialty coastal-inspired retail food items.
