The Shellfish Museum, located in Ellerslie, Prince Edward Island, is housed in the same building that much of the research for the Malpeque Oyster was done. Dr. A.W.H. Needler studied the oyster and developed a scientific means of farming oysters in order to speed the recovery process of the Malpeque Oyster. With federal dollars, Dr. Needler set up a research station on one of the tributaries on Malpeque Bay, the Bideford River.
