André Mallet schools Paul Bohmer and Adam Colquohoun in the art of oyster farming.

André Mallet schools Paul Boehmer (Bohmer) and Adam Colquohoun (Oyster Boy) in the art of oyster farming.

Marine Biologist and Oyster Farmer André Mallet’s highly sought-after La St. Simon and La Mallet oysters can now be found all over North America, but it wasn’t always that way.

We speak with André about his family’s history in oysters and how they got to where they are today, running one of the most bleeding-edge oyster facilities in the world in Shippagan, New Brunswick.

Mallet oysters are available through Toronto’s Oyster Boy.

For more of our reports on Mallet Oysters check out our interview with André’s son, Martin here.
