Oyster ambitions: A businessman works to revive Florida's oyster industry

Carlton Proctor | 5/24/2017

"I started this business because I want to resurrect what has been a dying industry," says Pensacola businessman Donnie McMahon. “The Gulf Coast has the best waters for oysters, and I wanted that Gulf taste back in our oysters."

McMahon launched Pensacola Bay Oyster Co. last summer, installing two oyster farms — Magnolia Bluffs Farm in Escambia Bay and a farm in Santa Rosa County's East Bay.
