Fanny Bay Oysters
Fanny Bay oysters are cultured near Comox just off of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They develop their nice cup and thick shells, reaching market size in 18 to 24 months. Water from the Pacific Ocean flows directly through the Strait of Juan de Fuca then up the Strait of Georgia over the site, producing oysters that tend to be quite salty. Their flavor is sweet with an aftertaste similar to that of cucumber.
