2015 Season

IMGP1372

Here we are at the beginning of 2015. Right now work on the oyster farm is relatively slow. We are shipping out oysters once a week. The FLUPSY is in layup waiting for yearly maintenance in March.  The unseasonable warm weather right now makes farm work more pleasant than in previous winters.
Last year, 2014 was our best year to date.  We sold more oysters than ever before, and got the FLUPSY running smoother.  Looking forward to seeing what this new year brings!

2014 season

My apologies for not posting sooner.  2014 has been a very busy year.   We’ve sold about 2.5 times as much seed this year as last and sold more oysters then ever.

Lay up

The FLUPSY is layed up for winter.   Thanks to all of our customers for a successful season.  2014 will be even better.

Sales

We have the fist million sold, orders for the second million lined up and ready to book the next one.  Make sure that I hear from you so that you don’t “fall through the cracks”.

Sales Orders

We are lining up sales.  You can “get in line” by emailing me at alaskan@bluestarroysters.com or call Anthony Lindoff at  907-586-9271.  He will make sure that I’ve got your info.

The steps to keep your place in line are:

1. Fill out an return (via email or USPS) your Sales order.  You can send in more than one if you are ordering for different time periods, ie for 2014.   Note that for larger orders you may not get all of the order at once – as supply is limited at this time and we need to spread the orders a bit.  I’ll do my best to tell you as soon as possible about that kind of situation.

2. When we receive the seed from that hatchery that your order will be filled from then we will require a 20% deposit to be sent.  If you haven’t been told up front then expect an invoice to arrive when we get the applicable seed.

3. You will need to submit a transport permit application to ADF&G before we can ship.  If you have submitted this application before we are cleared by pathology (which ensure that our outgoing seed is disease free) then ADF&G will hold your permit until we are cleared.

4. We need to have shipping worked out.  I will be in touch with you about this.  This should become quite standard in the future.

5. After your order has been sent to you, then you will receive a final invoice that includes any shipping/handling charges.

Let us worry about your seed needs.  Know that we are “turning over every stone” to get you what you need.

ADF&G Certification

We are not yet certified by ADF&G to sell seed.  If you submit an application for a  transport permit (from us to you)  before we are certified, then ADF&G will hold it until we are.  The certification is to ensure that our product is “disease free.”
