Baja California is the largest oyster producer in the country, the cultivations are found in the Bay of San Quintín. The process of production takes months, they start out as larvae bought in the region's laboratories, then they are inserted in small shells to initiate their growth, posterior to this they go through a wight gain stage in a tank, then they are taken to mature in the sea and finally are extracted for their sale.

The oysters are distributed in great quantities throughout the whole state and come to be exported national and internationally. Also, at this same site projects aimed towards preserving and growth of the practically extinct mollusk, the abalone.

One of the main activities of economic development of San Quintín are the products of the sea, the biggest oyster cultivation site of the region is situated right in the Falsa Bay (La Ostionera), a place of natural richness.
The Wetlands of the San Quintín Bay refuge more than 400 species, between which are included all types of birds, like de Canada Swan, inside an extensive area that includes a laguna complex for its conservation.
