Phantom Creek Oysters
This product is available during these seasons:
Phantom Creek Oysters (Crassostreas gigas) are deep water oysters that are beach hardened. Phantoms spend most of their lives growing plump in trays suspended from rafts in deep water. Three to six months prior to harvest, the oysters are placed on the beach where exposure to air, waves and predators harden the shell. The result is an oyster with the signature deep cup of deep water culture, and the tough shell and shelf life of a beach oyster. Phantom shells are a gorgeous purple-grey/green with a clean appearance and only a few if any barnacles. The meat of this oyster is petite with a mild flavor and clean finish.Phantom Creek Oysters are a product of Mac’s Oysters LTD, a fourth-generation family shellfish farm and the original shellfish processor in Fanny Bay, located in British Columbia.
