Our Story

Joe Sparling and Connor White, two neighbors from Bluepoint, Long Island grew up with a love and appreciation for the ocean and its conservation. After years of brainstorming different ways to turn this passion into a lifestyle, they created The Walrus and The Carpenter's Traveling Oyster Company. This allowed the duo to share the taste of fresh local shellfish while still helping the oceans. All used oyster and clam shells are recycled and donated to Stony Brook University's Marine Sciences Department to regrow oyster beds around Long Island and repair the damage done from decades of over-harvesting.
