All About the Heritage Shellfish Cooperative

Heritage Shellfish Cooperative is a producer-owned cooperative that was formed in 2013 by three experienced fishers that can trace their roots in family fishing back three or more generations. Members maintain a shared goal of preserving New Jersey’s tradition of clamming. They connect seafood lovers with delicious local hand-harvested shellfish raised using sustainable aquaculture practices and adhering to the highest standard for marine stewardship and preservation.  For these member-owners, being a clammer is a proud tradition and working their local waterways is a way of life.
