Whale Rock

Source: Chef’s Resource

Whale Rock Oysters are an East Coast oyster cultivated on the historic banks of the Mystic River in Connecticut. Availability is usually very limited while demand is typically high. Whale Rock Oysters are rack & bag farmed oysters which are cultivated and manicured to have a consistently shaped shell. Rack & bag cultured oysters are grown in mesh cages or bags which are generally staked about one to two feet off the bottom. Oysters raised by the rack & bag method are protected from predators and do not become cramped for space as they grow. They also do not have to filter as much sand & mud in order to get nutrients, thus they grow faster. They develop a deeper cup than beach cultured oysters.
