 A.R.C. SEED
AVAILABILITY UPDATE

November 1, 2018

Even though we still have some oyster and quahog seed available for sale through November, A.R.C. is preparing for a strong seed demand in 2019 by upgrading our overwintering facilities and developing an active spawning schedule for the year. We expect our remaining 2018 seed will be in winter storage by December 15.

Our 2019 spawns will start in January and seed will become available in the spring as the air and water temperature rise. We start to see growth of the nursery-sized seed when the air and water temperatures remain consistently above 50° F, 24 hours a day – typically in mid- to late April.

A.R.C. typically ships seed from April to November.

Check back often beginning in March for updates on availability of your seed.
