Ships Point

Source: Chef’s Resource

Ships Point Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from Baynes Sound in one of the British Columbia oyster appellations near Vancouver Island. They are truly a rustic, barnacle-covered Intertidal Beach Cultured Oyster. Beach cultured oysters are raised on tidal beaches with sandy or rocky bottoms. Ship’s Point Oysters 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. 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.
