Plump meats, low salinity, and a clean cucumber finish
We use a flip-bag system on intertidal beds. The oysters in our system are constantly being turned by wave and tidal action, which gives the oysters a very deep dish and a smooth hard shell.
- Tides:Skagit bay is an extremely nutrient rich body of water. The bay is fed by glacier melt rivers along with direct ocean tidal exchange coming from Deception Pass. Skagit Bay is one of the cleanest bays in the state of Washington.
- Bottom:Sand and mud
