The Blount family’s involvement in the shellfish industry began in the 1880s, with Eddie B. Blount’s entry into the oyster business in one of many oyster houses in West Barrington which handled the cleaning and shucking of clams and oysters from Rhode Island’s famous Narragansett Bay. In 1938, the Blount’s then-thriving oyster business was among the casualties of the massive hurricane that devastated the entire oyster industry in the Narragansett Bay area.
