In British Columbia aquaculture was pioneered by Mac's Oyster's founder Joseph McLellan. Having settled in Fanny Bay on the shores of Baynes Sound, Vancouver Island in the early 20th century, he noticed how productive the waters were in this shallow, beautiful Sound. Always a lover of oysters, which were eaten in abundance in his native Scotland, Joe saw the potential of this shellfish not only as a tasty healthy dish, but as the basis for a farming business. Today, Mac's Oyster provides buyers around the world with fresh oysters and clams.
