Stellar Bay Gold

Source: Chef’s Resource

Stellar Bay Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the British Columbia oyster appellations in Deep Bay by Vancouver Island, BC. They are a larger version of the famous Kusshi oyster, and like Kusshis, they are farmed by the tray suspension method coupled with a unique tumbling process. Oysters which are cultivated only by the suspension method are the prima donnas of oyster. They are suspended in mesh trays in deep water their entire lives, protected from predators, mud, sand and silt. They have beautiful shells with deep cups, but they are an oyster shucker’s nightmare because their shells are brittle since they never had to fight for survival. Stellar Bay Oysters take the extra step of Tumbling which helps strengthen their shells. The oyster flavor profile of suspended oysters tends to be clean, sweet & light, with meats which are tender.
