In April of 2012, Mac’s Seafood took the helm at the Wellfleet Shellfish Company. WSC launched in 2001 as a way for independent shellfishermen to share the work of getting their oysters and clams to Boston, New York and other markets. This is a great opportunity for us to support our local growers and help the project reach its full potential.
