Oyster Farm Returns to Westport, MA
November 17, 2010
EastBayRI.com: The Westport River’s first oyster farmer is back at it, although in a somewhat less conspicuous way.
Kerian Fennelly’s 1-acre Riptide Oysters operation is now tucked away in an East Branch corner up by the Let instead of in full view off the east side of the Fontaine Bridge.
And his boat is smaller. Since the waters he works are more shallow than before, he sold his 35-foot Bay Breeze lobster boat and now works from a skiff that he named Lila May after his and his wife Kristin’s nine-month-old daughter.
