Eel Lake, Nova Scotia
Nestled in the clean, cold waters of Eel Lake in St. Anne de Ruisseau, these Canadian treasures have deep tumbled cups and lovely light brown shells. A product of fresh and salt water, they have less salinity than most Atlantic oysters and their crunchy texture and distinct earthy finish make them profoundly delicious.

Nolan D'Eon, Pride of Farmers
Nolan D'Eon and his wife fell in love with each other and with Yarmouth County's Eel Lake. It's so clear and pristine you can almost see crabs scurrying, mussels growing, a fish called a tautog, and of course, eels. Nolan dreamed of being able to build a house on Eel Lake and make a living on it. And for 20 years he's worked with his brother, wife, and two sons to make Eel Lake Oyster Farm an award winning operation. Together, their determination and quest for quality make this family farm more successful each year.
The Gritty Details:
Eel Lake Oysters spend their entire life floating on the surface in OysterGro cages. The surface offers nutrient rich waters and a natural tumbling action. Time to market: 3 years.
