Emerald Cove Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics
Emerald Cove Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the British Columbia oyster appellations by Vancouver Island, BC. They 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. Emerald Cove Oysters have beautiful green pearlescent shells with deep cups, but their shells are brittle since they never had to fight for survival.
Emerald Coves are cultivated near Denman Island, BC and have a medium salinity, full, plump, creamy meats with a clean mild flavor and cucumber finish.
