 In 1984, we built our own facility for processing and producing both oysters and shucked oyster meat along with fresh picked crab meat and whole crabs which has been our focus since 1982. In 1995, we opened our second processing plant located on the Chesapeake Bay. This facility contains our crab picking dedicated to hand picking crab meat and our outdoor soft shell facility. We feel our products can be well marketed through established companies. We welcome the opportunity to explore a possible future relationship.
