Tuckers Island Shellfish was established in 2017 and is run by Jordan Lopinto and his sister Katie Gross. Named for a piece of South Jersey history. Tuckers Island was a seaside community lost to the sea. In the 1700’s Tuckers Island had a popular tavern and two hotels, many little beach shacks, and a lighthouse. By 1927 the Lighthouse had fallen into the sea and the Island was completely washed away in the 1940s. Today you can see Jordan and Katie working in a region of The Bay with lots of lore and history. Rail carts carried clams and oysters directly from the sea to the Tuckerton station. They were then shipped out to cities on the train that earned a nickname as the ‘Oyster Express’. Their oysters are balanced. Briny and sweet, their shells with a golden brown tint.
