The waters of the Apalachicola Bay are among the cleanest and most productive in the nation yielding seafood landings in excess of $14 million annually in Franklin County. The famous Apalachicola Bay oysters are among the most delectable and nutritious seafood in the world.
They are also a very important part of the Franklin County economic picture. More than 1,000 people are employed by the million dollar industry in the County.
In 1997, over $2 million worth of oysters (1.4 million pounds of oyster meat) was shucked in Franklin County seafood houses, according to State Marine Fisheries Statistics. Historically, Franklin County harvests more than 90 % of Florida's oysters and 10 % of the nationwide supply.
Within Franklin County, oysters make up almost one-third the value of commercial marine landings. Shrimp, blue crab and fin fish are also important commercially, bringing in over $11 million worth of seafood to Franklin County docks.
