Question: Are cultivated oysters defined and labeled as farm raised?

Answer: While there is no state regulation requiring shellfish at retail be labeled as farmed or wild, there is the Federal Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) regulation, which requires country of origin and production method be identified for fish and shellfish. So unless exempt, as outlined in the regulation, production method should be listed. You can see the specific regulation in the Code of Federal Regulations.
