Golden Mantle Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the British Columbia oyster appellations by Vancouver Island, BC. They grown in the pristine, clean waters of BC's Sunshine Coast, just north of the Powell River.
Golden Mantle Oysters are farmed by the tray suspension method. Oysters which are cultivated by the suspension method are the primadonnas of oyster. They are suspended in mesh trays in deep water their entire lives, protected from predators, mud, sand and silt. They have beautiful shells with deep cups, but they are an oyster shucker’s nightmare because their shells are brittle since they never had to fight for survival. The oyster flavor profile of suspended oysters tends to be clean, sweet & light, with meats which are tender.
