Miyagi Oysters / Crassostrea gigas

Miyagi oysters (aka Japanese oysters or Pacific oysters) are the most widely farmed oysters in the world, since they are easy to grow and adapt to new environments easily. These marvelous mollusks can each clean up to 50 gallons of water a day! For this reason, oysters of any kind are one of the most sustainable seafood choices on the market.

Our local oysters usually come from Tomales Bay and Morro Bay. They are available year-round, but the flavors are at their peak in the colder months. 

Culinary Tips: Raw Miyagi oysters have a briny flavor with a sweet, cucumber finish and are perfect with your favorite raw bar condiments. They're also fantastic grilled or broiled in the shell with a compound butter.

Catch Method: Farm raised

Sustainability: Oysters are as sustainable as sustainable gets. They filter and clean our waterways, they provide important habitat for juvenile fish, and they buffer our coastline from storm surge and waves.

Abalone have shells, but they are not technically shellfish. They are actually mollusks, more closely related to scallops, sea slugs, octopuses and squid. In some countries they are called sea snails.

Besides their delicious flavor, abalone are known for the beautiful colors of the inside of their shells. Large algae, such as the giant kelp found in Monterey Bay, are the preferred food of abalone, and this is why they grow so well in our local waters. They have many wild predators, including the beloved southern sea otter. 

Culinary Tips: Red Abalone is more closely related to squid and octopus than to muscles or clams, so its flavor is sweet, mild with a tender texture, similar to those species. It can be battered and fried, seared, or gently cooked in butter.

Catch Method: Farm raised

Sustainability: Wild abalone harvest for commercial sale in California is illegal due to dwindling populations. Our abalone offerings are farm raised in closed on-shore systems that minimize waste output and do not interact with the marine environment.
