Tom's Cove Aquafarms benefits from an ideal location off Chincoteague Island on Virginia's Eastern Shore. Chincoteague has a long history linked to fishing, seafood and shellfish. For over 150 years, the cool, ocean-fed waters surrounding this island have yielded some of the finest shellfish found along the East Coast of the United States. So strong was the demand for island seafood by northern markets, that during the Civil War, Chincoteague unanimously voted to stay with the Union.

Today the demand remains, as Chincoteague shellfish continues to command respect among seafood conoisseurs worldwide. At Tom's Cove Aquafarms, we are proud to uphold that tradition of excellence.
