Marino Brothers - Cottage City Oysters - Very Informative

Just listened to Dan & Greg Marino's podcast on Furure Frogman about their Cottage City Oysters oyster farming endeavor on Martha's Vineyard, MA. Well worth the time to listen and very informative about how they got started, the hurdles they overcame from town committees, shore neighbors, local fishermen, misinformation and other local politics and then the very productive end result once they were allowed to start farming. It is fascinating how sustainable and environmentally friendly oyster farming is for planet Earth. Thank you, Dan and Greg for imparting your experience with the help of Future Frogman.
