Eagle Rock Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics

Eagle Rock Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from Totten Inlet which is one of the South Puget Sound oyster appellations in Washington State. They are named after an actual landmark rock in Totten Inlet where Bald Eagles do perch.

They are raised by the bag to beach method which combines two oyster farming methods. Rack & bag oysters are taken from their pampered environment and put into the beach cultured environment during their last 6 months before harvesting. This allows them to “toughen up” a bit, giving them stronger, less brittle shells and firmer meats.

Eagle Rock Oysters have a high brininess with creamy meats, sweet flavor and nori finish. Due to the high nutrients of Totten Inlet these oysters are high in glycogen which gives them characteristic plump sweetness.
