Fun Fact

Oysters have extremely strong adductor muscles to close their shells when threatened.

Product Preparation

We like to serve Buckley Bay Oysters raw on the half shell. They’re fairly mild, so just a squirt of lemon juice will enhance their brine and melon-like flavor.

Product Nutrition

Buckley Bay Oysters, like the whole oyster family, are a low fat and high protein seafood. They also contain a good source of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
