  9. 9. HOLLANDER & DE KONING MUSSELS MYTILUS EDULIS ABOUT PRODUCT DETAILS Every mussel is washed, graded for size, de-bearded, and purged of any sand. Once you try them, you’ll never forget them. Hollander & de Koning mussels are the only Dutch-style mussel in North America. They are special because they are grown on the ocean bottom unlike other mussels, which are rope or pole-grown. This technique produces superior meats that are robust, hearty, and flavorful. The de Koning family has been growing mussels for six generations since 1776. With their expertise and the pristine waters of Bar Harbor, Maine, Hollander & de Koning mussels truly are the best premium blue mussels on the market today.

  10. 10. WILLAPOINT SHUCKED OYSTERS CRASSOSTREA GIGAS ABOUT PRODUCT DETAILS Never worry you’ll get more liquid than juicy oyster meats in every half gallon tub. Of all the shucked oysters we’ve tried, these Willapoint oysters are the best. They are plump, sweet, and hold up well for numerous cooking uses. The advantage of having a West Coast shucked oyster is the guarantee that the liquor will not weigh more than 10% of the unit weight. You can always expect at least 3.5 lb. of oyster meat from every half gallon. These oysters are also great because they are triploid oysters, which means you can expect their meat quality to stay plump and consistent all year. FarmedProduct Harvest Location Willapa Bay, Washington Sizing Approx. 16 pcs/lb. Sold in 4 lb., ½ gallon units Culture Method Bottom-cultured and suspended-culture Harvest Method Jet-driven boats harvest the oysters then unload onto a conveyer system straight to the processing facility. Oysters are hand shucked then packaged. Average Shelf Life 21 days from shuck date buried in ice stored at 38-43° F BEST SERVED SEASONALITY Deepfried, baked, broiled, stuffed, or stewed Availableyear-round Back to list
  11. 11. MANILA CLAMS VENERUPIS PHILIPPINARUM ABOUT PRODUCT DETAILS Beautiful shells and sweet, tender meats. A great addition to brighten any dish! These native Asian clams were accidentally introduced to the US when cargo ships pumped out their ballasts. Since then, they have become a Pacific Northwest staple and an interesting ingredient chefs like to feature in their seafood specials. Our manila clams are flown from Washington and then wet-stored in our HACCP- certified seawater system to rejuvenate them and increase their shelf life. They are available in two sizes, small and medium. FarmedProduct Harvest Location Washington and British Columbia Sizing Small: 30-35 pcs/lb. Medium: 20-25 pcs/lb.
