Evening Cove

Source: Chef’s Resource

Evening Cove Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the British Columbia oyster appellations around Vancouver Island, BC. They are an Intertidal Beach Cultured Oyster. They are named after the tranquil Evening Cove on the eastern side of Vancouver Island, BC.

Beach cultured oysters are raised on tidal beaches with sandy or rocky bottoms. They are accustomed to fighting the tides, clamping tightly shut during low tides to preserve their “liquor” and to protect themselves against predators. Because of this “tough” life, beach raised oysters are hearty. Their meats are full and firm. Beach grown oysters have hard, sturdy shells which shuckers like to work with. And their ability to close tightly, coupled with their hard shells, gives them a longer shelf life.
