The Wellfleet Oyster is world-renowned, considered one of the best for generations. A true Eastern oyster, it grows as far north as Canada and as far south as Chesapeake Bay, VA. Why so good? The salinity in Wellfleet Harbor is relatively high compared to, for example, the more brackish waters of upper Chesapeake Bay. Experienced tasters find that oysters that grow in the saltier Massachusetts waters tend to have a cleaner, sharper flavor.
Moonrock Oysters - Coos Bay, Oregon. The Moonrock Oyster is 3 - 3.5", has a medium-full brine, Meaty, with a clean, sweet finish.
Tide Point Oysters - Willapa Bay, Washington. The Tide Point Oyster is 2 - 2.5", has a medium brine, and a clean, slightly sweet finish.
Eagle Rock Oysters - Totten Inlet, Washington (southern Puget Sound). These oysters are intertidally grown, and generally taste mildly salty, with the meats tending to have a lot of fat (glycogen) on them, making them plump and sweet.
