Now that's a pretty, clean healthy looking oyster! lots of definition and clarity. None of those puffy, milky looking, no taste ones for me...🤤

One of the best of all time in every way too.

it's seasonal; and Australia is a BIG country, so when one region is "off", others are "on". In South Australia, some farmers are introducing non-spawning oysters, so, they hope, there will be no off-season. Called "triploid oysters". America has them as well - www.coastseafoods.com/triploid_oysters.html

We have oysters all year they probably just couldn't source any good ones However due to the oyster virus hitting Tasmania they are in short supply

This is what we were selling in March think they need a new supplier

Thank you Dick Blackstone

Thank you Dick BlackstoneDick Blackistone has volunteered his time and talents with ORP for more than 7 years. During this time, He has worked 3,200 hours, collecting shell from restaurants throughout Maryland, DC and Virginia, and educating the public at countless outreach events. He is an integral part of our shell recycling operations, helping reclaim used shell from hundreds of restaurants, which is then cleaned, aged, seeded and used to create oyster reefs.

Dick is truly passionate about the Chesapeake Bay, a connection developed early on as he spent his free time fishing, crabbing and boating at his family’s property in St. Mary’s County.

As a nonprofit organization, we are only as strong as the support we receive. Consider this post our public display of appreciation for our most dedicated volunteer!

Its not very often that I meet #oyster nerds who are as cool as Sonny from Shuck Oyster Bar. Long before becoming a shellfish expert, Sonny was a professional video game player who travelled the world. I asked him if there are any similarities or overlaps between the gaming world and the oyster world? Mmm.. nope! But I think you can unlock special weapons in both scenarios. For example, Sonny is holding up two private reserve tumbled Glacier Point Oysters from Kachemak Bay, AK that were specially sent by Weatherly Bates. Win! #oysters #oystersommelier #whatstheOMG #shucker #rawbar #shuckoysterbar #southerncalifornia #seafood

The #KumiaiOyster (c. Gigas) is nurtured in off-bottom bags to start out and then basket-matured on longlines that are naturally tumbled around by the tide. Theyre grown in Guerrero Negro in Baja California Sur, land of vast salt fields, a diverse bounty of shellfish, and starkly beautiful scenery. When I arrived by plane, I was surprised by how chilly and windy the place was. Shouldve known that the Pacific Coast of Mexico is not like the Gulf Coast of Mexico 😐 But warm water oysters, these are not. Theyve got a toothsome bite, ample brine, and savoriness that would make you assume that theyre from the opposite corner of the Pacific. #oystersommelier #whatstheOMG #oysterlove #oysters #oystersomm #shellfish #seafood #kumiai #bajacalifornia #artofoysters #chefstalk #ostiones #ostra #huitres @bajashellfishfarms

Its a must. 👍🏻 Shown here are some fabulous Kumiai oysters (masterfully shucked by Chef Drew Deckman @bajafishingchef), which I had the joy of discovering in 2014 at the Boston Seafood Expo.

Hermit - dutch coastal gin, with a splash of distilled water from the Oosterschelde (one of the dutch oysterhotspots) as ingrediënt. Lovely as gin-tonic but even better as a few drops on the oyster itself!

Scotch neat. A few drops on the oyster itself is delicious as well! I'm sure you could come up with a good scotch tail to go with it

Tito vodka oyster shooter or a French 75 (yeah, I know it has champagne in it😏)

Bourbon on the rocks, or on the oyster...

Jack Daniels oyster Shooters Dash of tabasco.

A Bloody ceaser with Clamato juice!!!

Bloody Mary!🍹

A nice Gibson like I having now.🍸

Picon Champagne.... Mmmm! 🎩

Clamato and Smirnoff, nice salt oyster floating on top.
