Species Name:Crassostrea sikamea
A unique oyster originally from Japan.
Where – Humboldt Bay, CA and also Baja, CA
How – Farm-raised
This small, deeply cupped oyster is named for its bay where they originated on the Japanese island of Kyushu, although ours are currently grown in here in the southern West Coast. Although they are quite small, their salty, sweet flavor makes up for what they lack in size. Their size and great flavor make them a favorite for beginning oyster eaters.
