Jeff Auger began working in aquaculture as an employee of Cape Cod Oyster Company in Barnstable, Mass., back in 2002. He continued to work in the industry throughout college and law school, where he became a legal intern for the Conservation Law Foundation.
He graduated from Pace Law School in 2012, passed the New York and Massachusetts bar exams and is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.
In 2012 Jeff moved to Maine to work at Mook Sea Farm as their River Manager. He has participated in the ECSGA’s annual “Walk on the Hill,” discussed farm sanitation at the Maine Fishermen’s Forum, and testified at meetings of the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC). In 2021 Jeff accepted a position with Atlantic Aqua Farms USA and is still working on the Damariscotta River with Muscongus Bay Aquaculture. If not on a farm trying to grow more oysters you can find Jeff chasing fish or hiking in his hometown, Bath, with his wife and pups.
