Beach Angel

Beach Angel, Cortes Island, Out Landish Shellfish

ORIGIN: Cortes Island, BC

SIZE: Small

FLAVOUR PROFILE: Briny flavour, robust finish, cucumber taste.

NOTES: Living their life on the beach. This romantic but rugged lifestyle, gives these oysters a robust shell and briny flavour.

There are remarkable differences between a beach oyster and a tray oyster.  It takes three to four years for a beach oyster to reach market size, while a tray oyster from the deep-water  is ready in two.
