The oyster industry provided work for Daufuskie Islanders from the 1880s to 1959. The oysters around the island and neighboring islands were plentiful, lush, and according to historian Billie Burn, the tastiest on the east coast. So tasty in fact, that Daufuskie oysters were shipped all over the world. This included delivery to the Tsar of Russia who took delight in this exotic food. The man who first brought a full-scaled oyster industry to Daufuskie was Luigi Paoli Maggioni, originally from Genoa, Italy. In 1893 he opened an oyster-canning factory on the island and Daufuski Oysters (minus the e) became the Maggioni brand name. The red labels on the can feature the trademark of an Indian Head adorned with a beautiful, feathered war bonnet. The Maggioni Oyster Company continues to operate from Savannah, and Daufuski canned oysters may be found on shelves today, but they do not contain oysters from Daufuskie. The oyster economy ended on Daufuskie when polluted waters from the Savannah River contaminated the oyster beds.
