Blue Point Oysters
Year Round (Weather Permitting)
Long Island Sound, Connecticut
Cannot ship on Tuesdays. Cannot be shipped to Louisiana or Hawaii.
Connecticut Blue Point oysters have been an iconic Atlantic oyster variety for ages. These oysters are farmed in the Long Island Sound without the use of cages or traps. They are harvested between 3” and 4” in size and have a briny, meaty flavor with a bit of Atlantic muskiness.
These oysters have been stored in a high tech refrigerated flowing seawater system post-harvest that keeps them fresher, tastier, and alive longer. While in this wet holding area, they naturally clean themselves of sand, bacteria and grit by filtering the clean seawater.
If you will be eating your Blue Point oysters soon after arrival, you can simply store them in a bowl in your refrigerator covered with a damp towel.
For ideal longer term storage, you may want to keep them on ice with the "cup" side of the shell down. See how to store shellfish for a tutorial.
7-10 days from date shipped.
