Samish Bay Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the North Puget Sound oyster appellations in Washington State. They are an Intertidal Beach Cultured Oyster. 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, Samish Bay Oysters are hearty. They 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.
