The Malpeque Oyster has a long and rich history beginning its origin as a wild grown shellfish within the natural bays of Prince Edward Island. It was judged the world's tastiest oyster at a Paris exhibition in 1900. It continues to be recognized as one of the world's finest, known for a clean sharp taste.
Our wild Malpeque oysters are designated into two grades; Choice and Standard. Choice is the top grade for oysters, and are ideal for serving on the half shell. Shells are round and deep ensuring a full, plump oyster. They are easy to shuck and have a salty taste with a sweet finish. Standard oysters have a slightly irregular shape with the same flavour as Choice, but are an excellent choice for cooking or frying.
