Region & Fishery
Oysters actually breathe like fish. They have gills and a mantle to remove oxygen from the water, and to discard carbon monoxide.
Pink Moons are wonderful raw on the half shell with lemon and a dusting of cayenne. You may also broil or roast them with a butter-garlic sauce, as well as shuck them for delicate stews and soups.
Pink Moon Oysters deliver a low fat, high protein source of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
