About Aphrodite Oysters

“The name Aphrodite comes from the Greek Goddess, which stands for love and beauty. I thought this name was very suitable for my oysters because of my love and passion for the beautiful coast of Maine.” 

Aphrodite Oysters is operated Krista Tripp, a true born and raised Mainer, evident in the massive impact the ocean and the coast has had on her life. Owner of a family lobstering business, Krista started Aphrodite Oysters as a means of diversifying her income, given the environmental threats imposed upon the Maine lobster industry as a whole. 

What started as a savvy business move, however, blossomed into a passion that bolsters the aquaculture economy, cleanses the coastal ecosystem, and supports women owned and operated businesses. 

Located in the Weskeag River in the Mid-coast Region, Krista's oysters are grown in the crisp, clean, cold waters of the Penobscot Bay. 

Hand harvested and washed, every Aphrodite Oyster is unique. You can have these oyster shipped to your door in the Taste of Maine Kit, in any of our oyster variety packages, or in bulk!

We just ate them all! Literally, perfect. The package, the presentation, the product. Awesome!

Jacob Greenwood ,

Thank you! They were amazing. And we appreciate the “heavy pour” and new shucking knife - which I really liked using. Appreciate you sending them off-cycle. We were loving the club - but now more so than every.

Jim ,

You’re my new addiction ... tastier than shoes ... although I keep ordering those as well lol
