Characteristics

CharacteristicsThe tidal inlet near the town of Richibucto is fed by the phytoplankton-rich waters of the Northumberland Strait and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The rich waters and top-culture floating bag system provide the nutrients and ceaseless motion to produce a deep cupped bottom valve and salty-sweet flavor that is second to none.

MER BLEUE oysters convert the feast they partake during the summer and fall into simple sugars in preparation for the winter months. The clean brininess and sweet finish are unmistakably all about the Acadian Peninsula.

After a 4 to 5 year growth cycle, MER BLEUE oysters are hand packed cup down in a stylish wooden box to minimize movement during transportation and storage which maximizes shelf life.
