PSRF provides our local shellfish gardeners clean, healthy seed from a certified source. Learn how you can become a shellfish gardener.


Our Annual Seed Sale is here!  We will be making some changes to our seed pickup this year making sure we are all safe and practice social distancing.  Order pick-up will take place on Saturday, June 20th from 8AM-11AM.  Stay tuned for more details on that once we’ve received your order.

This year, more than ever, your PRE-ORDER is essential!  Click HERE for a PDF of our order form.  You can also order on line (see below for detailed instructions).  The deadline for all pre-orders is June 10, 2020.

Returning this year we have triploid seed (non-reproducing) and Kumo’s!  We will have a TWO Bag limit per person, SOLD by the weight.  A 1-Liter bag has approximately 300-500 oysters/bag, depending on size.

Please be sure to specify on the order form the physical location where your seed will actually be planted (either the street address or parcel/lot number).  There is a good reason for this requirement. When you purchase seed from PSRF, you will be covered under our transfer permit and we can give your seed a clean bill of health!  This is because all the seed that we provide is purchased from a State-certified source – Taylor Shellfish.  Seed should not be purchased from uncertified sources, since it could potentially introduce disease organisms into local waters.  For instance, oysters should never be purchased from a grocery store and then put out on the beach.  If the shellfish comes from out of state or even another basin within the state, this could inadvertently cause problems.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Wendy Welch at 206.780.6947 or [email protected].
