A bit about American Mussel Harvesters
In 1987, shortly after starting American Mussel Harvesters, Inc., Bill Silkes, along with Vice President, Jane Bugbee, outgrew a boat-based business and took up residence on the pier in the historic fishing village of Galilee, Rhode Island. AMH continued to serve local New England restaurants and expanded to markets and distributors nationwide. With an avid devotion to presenting the freshest shellfish available, and a true love of his “animals,” Bill traveled to several mussel-producing countries to study their processes. He brought home just a little more than he could fit in his carry on! He purchased the highest quality state of the art equipment he could find in the world, literally. All this beautiful new machinery needed a larger home and in 2002 American Mussel relocated to the Quonset Business Park, strategically located on Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island.

Today American Mussel Harvesters, Inc. is one of the largest producers of mussels in North America. Additionally, AMH has integrated oysters and clams into their program and have formed strategic alliances with independent shellfish farmers in the area. In 2001, Bill began planting seed and aquaculturing oysters under the umbrella of Salt Water Farms, LLC. The food-rich, pristine waters, produces three varieties of farmed oysters and the premium Rhode Island Mussel, The Blue Gold. The strategic partnerships and production integration is the hallmark of AMH and continues its proud heritage of specializing in authentic brands of Restaurant Ready® live shellfish.
