Flavor Profile
Very unique look -- relentless tumbling produces an oyster shaped like a mussel. Flavor is sweet and briny with a cucumber finish.

Flavor Influenced By 

  • Salinity: 3.2% < 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  • Tides: Tidal flow from Puget Sound
  • Bottom Makeup: Sand and gravel

Growout Method
Hatchery seed is suspended on longlines in Seapa Baskets. The baskets float and sink as the tide lifts and falls each day, creating a naturally tumbled oyster.
