San Quintin Baja CaliforniaMexico
Ostricola Nautilus Oyster Farm is a third-generation family-owned enterprise founded in 1976 and is one of the first farms to export Pacific Oysters (Crassostrea gigas) to the U.S. market. The farm is owned and operated by Vicente Guerrero.
Ostricola Nautilus is located in San Quintín, a coastal town on the west coast of Baja California that is well known for its seafood farming. The farm itself is located at the Bahia San Quintin lagoon complex where proximity to inter-tidal water, and the variety of micro algae in it, gives the Nautilus oysters their own special flavor. Through its continuous efforts working with the University of Baja California (UABC), Nautilus Oyster Farm promotes the use of new culture techniques to keep a perfect equilibrium with nature.
