Blue Island Oyster Co. was founded in 1995 with the aim of providing Manhattan restaurants with the highest quality shellfish available. It all started when Chris Quartuccio began scuba diving for natural oysters in the Long Island Sound and delivering them fresh daily to chefs in New York City. This business has grown substantially in 24 years and is now recognized as the number one oyster and clam distributor in the New York area. Blue Island has recently expanded its marketplace and is now shipping shellfish all over the United States. Our oysters and clams can be found on restaurant menus in Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston & Miami.
