Conway Royal Oysters

Farmed in Malpeque Bay by Five Star Shellfish, Conway Royal Oysters are Malpeque oysters with a better grade. They retain the same classic briny flavor, but have more consistent and stronger shells than standard Malpeques. Their beautiful meats reflect the pristine PEI waters: clean, clear, and fresh.

From the Growers

We’ve got over a hundred years of experience between all the boys here. My father was a fishermen all his life, and he always loved oysters, lobsters, and the sea since he was young. And we kind of got that trait from our father. We all love working together with each other, my brothers and I. There are three owners of the business, me and my two other brothers. Our business has been around for over 10 years.

It’s a family owned business. My two sons work here, my younger brother’s two sons work here, and we all work as brothers and family together. We enjoy working. We enjoy each other’s company. And hopefully we enjoy it as much as everybody enjoys Five Star oysters because they’re top of the line, and some of the best tasting oysters in the world.
