Buy Our Oyster Shells!

Since 2016, PDE has collected oyster shells from local restaurants and used them in restoration projects all over the Delaware River Watershed.

PDE sells shells to the restoration community of the Delaware Bay. All proceeds are used to sustain the shell recycling program.

What’s available:

Shell bags: Each bag is approximately 14lbs. each, 18 inches long and 12 inches wide.

Bushels: We also have bushels of cured loose shells available.

Contact Leah Morgan at for more information or to order shells. Shell inventory is managed in Wilmington, DE and Philadelphia, PA.
