Fun Fact

An oyster produces a pearl when a grain of sand or some other irritant becomes trapped inside. The oyster then coats it repeatedly with nacre, a combination of calcium and protein, otherwise known as Mother of Pearl, to reduce the irritation.

Product Preparation

Serve Fanny Bay Oysters raw on the half shell, over shaved ice. Wedges of fresh lemon and a few dabs of horseradish are all that is needed to compliment this unique flavor experience.

Product Nutrition

Fanny Bay Oysters are an intriguing taste experience. But they also offer a good source of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids. Low in fat and high in protein, as well.
