Our Carlsbad Luna oysters (Crassostrea giga) are
sustainably grown and locally farmed in Southern California by Carlsbad
Aquafarm. At 2-3” in size and nestled in a deep-cupped shell full of flavorful
Pacific liquor, the Luna oyster is most similar to a Kumamoto. These petite
beauties boast a refreshing brininess with a touch of melon and cucumber and
subtle metallic finish.
Located just outside San Diego, Carlsbad Aquafarm minimally
impacts mar ine habitats, wild fish populations, water quality, and the
community. Suspended long-line tray culture keeps shellfish product clean and
optimally minimizes contact with the marine environment. Rigorous laboratory
testing and ultra-violet purification systems help ensure product safety.
Filter-feeding oysters naturally feed on nutrient-rich phytoplankton.
Oysters are shipped live and fresh; never frozen or
Tip: Live oysters should have tightly-closed, clean,
unbroken shells (if gaping slightly, live oyster will close when tapped), and
fresh scent of the sea. Store oyster in ≤40°F refrigerator covered with a moist
cloth in breathable container for up to 5 days. There is no such thing as a
time of year not to purchase. When oysters are spawning, their flavor, texture
and size are slightly compromised but not their freshness.
