Characteristics

CharacteristicsThese Pacific Oysters are grown using the rack and bag method in the pristine waters of the Guerrero Negro Lagoon, located next to the Vizcaino Bay which is influenced by the local California Current. The constant upwelling brings nutrient-rich bottom waters to the surface providing a high phytoplankton diet for the oysters, resulting in good meat yield year round.
