Effingham Oysters

Location: Barkley Sound, British Columbia, Canada

Latin: Crassostrea gigas

Catch: Aquacultured Flip Farmed

Fisherman/Source: Canadian Seafood Processing Inc

Seasonality: Year Round

Texture: Plump & Juicy

Color: Beige

Flavor: Very clean with a delicate flavor, and briny. Tastes like surfing in Tofino!


The Effinghams are the only oyster to hail from the WEST SIDE of Vancouver Island with real access to the Pacific Ocean (as opposed to the Salish Sea on the east side of the island!). For this reason, these oysters are NOT proned to the vibrio or red tide that the typical east side oysters get.


We believe that once you try these oysters, they will quickly become your favorite BC oyster!




Kusshi Oysters

Location: Deep Bay, British Columbia, Canada

Latin: Crassostrea gigas

Catch: Aquacultured

Fisherman/Source: Taylor Shellfish

Seasonality: Year Round

Texture: Plump & Juicy

Color: Beige

Flavor: Very clean with a delicate flavor, and briny.


From the Japanese word for “ultimate’, Kusshi oysters are farmed by the tray suspension method coupled with a unique tumbling process. Suspended in mesh trays in deep water their entire lives, protected from predators, mud, sand and silt. These suspended oysters have beautiful shells with deep cups, and have hard shells which are easy to shuck because they take the extra step of Tumbling which helps strengthen their shells. It can take up to four years for the Kusshi to go through its special cultivation process and be ready for market. The end result is a perfectly manicured hard shell with an unusually deep cup and fabulous meats.


Royal Miyagi Oysters

Location: Fanny Bay, British Columbia, Canada

Latin: Magallana gigas

Catch: Aquacultured

Fisherman/Source: Taylor Shellfish

Seasonality: Year Round

Texture: Plump & Juicy

Color: Beige

Flavor: Clean and briny, and slightly metallic.


Raised by the suspension line to beach method which combines two oyster farming methods. Line suspension oysters are taken from their pampered environment and put into the beach cultured environment during their remaining 6 months prior to harvesting. This allows them to “toughen up” a bit, giving them stronger, less brittle shells and firmer meats. Though their shells are often more brittle than other varieties.
