Falmouth’s Busy Harbor
Falmouth Harbor is an on-the-go area of growth and change. Folks here live the life aquatic, from towboat captains to captains of industry whose yachts rely on Falmouth’s storied boatyards. The commercial boat ramp is in high demand, and construction here is constant: boats, bulkheads, docks, and more are built, repaired, restored, and expanded.
Oysters Grow In Falmouth Harbor
Falmouth Harbor is home to yacht clubs, restaurants and motels, but did you know that oysters are grown right here too? They call the Town of Falmouth’s Marine and Environmental Service oyster upwellers their home. Oysters eat microscopic marine plants called phytoplankton, reducing the amount of nitrogen and helping improve the Harbor’s water quality. Thanks, oysters!
