50 - 100 Oysters | Free Shipping

Carraquette oysters are an Atlantic oyster variety from New Brunswick with a darker color due to the highly mineralized water they’re grown in.  The minerals also add to their flavor, contributing a mineral finish to the usual sweet, briny, musky flavors usually found in east coast oysters.  They’re quite small (1 ¾”-2 ¼”), making them an easy-to-handle option for parties.

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.
