Netarts Bay Oyster

Netarts Bay Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics

Netarts Bay Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the Oregon Coast oyster appellations.  They are an Intertidal Beach Cultured Oyster.  Beach cultured oysters are raised on tidal beaches with sandy or rocky bottoms.  They are accustomed to fighting the tides, clamping tightly shut during low tides to preserve their “liquor” and to protect themselves against predators.  Because of this “tough” life, beach raised oysters are hearty.  They have hard, sturdy shells which shuckers like to work with.  And their ability to close tightly, coupled with their hard shells, gives them a longer shelf life.

Netarts Bay oysters are no longer available as the company has gone out of business.
