Who We Are

We Farm, We Dive, We Source

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 29 years and is recognized as the number one oyster and clam distributor in the New York area. Blue Island expanded its marketplace and ships shellfish all over the United States. Our oysters and clams can be found on restaurant menus in Colorado, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston & Miami.

Our dedication to consistent quality and adherence to proper oyster appellation has landed our shellfish in virtually every oyster bar and seafood restaurant in Manhattan. Numerous James Beard Award winners, 3 and 4 star chefs, and large restaurant groups have designated Blue Island as their primary supplier.

Blue Island Oyster Farm was founded in 2004 in the Great South Bay, by the Fire Island Inlet. Blue Island Oyster was the first operation to grow oysters in the Great South Bay since the closure of the original Blue Point Oyster Co.
