Permits for Hog Island Oyster revised

February 26, 2019 Anna Guth, Point Reyes Light

Changes are coming for Hog Island Oyster Company, after the California Coastal Commission updated the company’s permits this month. Although the new permit terms mostly reflect the company’s current practices, they also authorize a possible doubling of Hog Island’s cultivated acres on Tomales Bay, and come with a series of new environmental mitigation measures.
