Friends of Herring River
Wellfleet and Truro, Massachusetts

Shellfish grants are a common sight in Wellfleet Harbor today, but this was not always the case. This talk, presented by Dr. Barbara Brennessel, will provide an historical background to the "wild" shellfish industry in Wellfleet and explain the basics of shellfish aquaculture from its earliest practices to modern shellfish farming.

Part industry guide, part biology lesson, part cultural and Town history, this event will highlight iconic Wellfleet shellfish from their birth and growth on the flats to the dinner plate. This event is being co-sponsored by the Wellfleet Shellfish Advisory Board and the Wellfleet Shellfish Department.

Copies of "Good Tidings" will be available and signed by the author for the special rate of $5/copy, with all proceeds donated to Friends of Herring River.
