“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 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. 

Hand harvested and washed, every Aphrodite Oyster is unique
