Aphrodite Oysters is operated by 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.
