These oysters are cultivated in (you guessed it) Deep Bay on the east side of Vancouver Island in British Columbia. They are tray cultivated and then finished on the beach to harden their shells. This process (bag to beach) results in deep shells with full, tender meats, consistenly shaped shells with a medium hardness making them relatively easy to shuck with shattering the shell.
Deep Bay Oysters are plump & sweet with a mild brininess, a light watermelon finish and clean aftertaste.
