Supporting Fishermen, Culture and Traditions on Cape Cod
Cold, clean waters, fast-moving tides, balanced salinity and an abundance of nutrients make Wellfleet Harbor the perfect environment for nurturing shellfish. Ask for Wellfleet shellfish at your fish market or local restaurant.
Over 300 people in Wellfleet make their living through shellfishing. At $6.2 million, it is the primary year-round economic driver for the town. SPAT works hard to promote and strengthen this vital industry.
Proceeds from the Wellfleet OysterFest support SPAT’s commitment to give back. Over $435,000 has been reinvested into the community through scholarships, grants and initiatives that sustain Wellfleet’s shellfishing and aquaculture industries.
