“SLURP! is the Shellfish Lovers Ultimate Rejuvenation Party, and I can’t think of anything more rejuvenating after the hiatus than to gather on the waterfront and toast to the wonderful shellfish that are grown in our region. The SLURP! is used to fund the disposal of trash collected by the Shellfish Growers Beach Clean Up. The clean-up has resulted in 180 dump trucks of trash and over 500 tires being removed from our beaches. Shellfish farmers have a shared vision of stewardship of these waters, and we are excited to share in this celebration for a cause with our community,” says Shina Wysocki, Owner of Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar and Chelsea Farms.
