To All Oysters
Quilcene Bay, WA
On the northern end of Hood Canal, seawater from the glacial valley extends from Dabob Bay into Quilcene Bay, an area with incredible marine biodiversity. The Quilcene tribe were known as the "saltwater people," and shellfishing has always been central to this community. Quilcene Oysters are clean and pristine just like the area they are grown in.
