Olympia oysters are very small, but they have a full-bodied flavor. They are often the pick for first-timers because of their size, which, even full-grown is not much bigger than a 50 cent piece. The Olympia oyster is the only oyster native to the U. S. West Coast.

Storage: Fresh oysters are best kept alive by placing them in an open container in a refrigerator and covering them with a clean wet towel to prevent them from drying out. Do not keep them in a bucket of sea water, in plastic bags or other air tight containers.

Shelf Life: The sooner live oysters are consumed, the fresher they will be (especially when you plan on eating them raw).  Depending on whether you’re eating them raw or cooked, they should remain fresh (when properly stored) for 5-7 days.  If they start smelling fishy or if they are open, throw them out!

Despite their reputation for being tricky, live oysters are surprisingly easy to open with an oyster knife and the proper technique:
