Wildcat Cove is a breathtaking spot that grows a wowza oyster. A little gem of an alcove where Little Skookum meets Totten Inlet, there's plenty of water exchange, phytoplankton + zero boat traffic. Sigh. Heaven. The bag-to-beach cultivation, tide tumbling and rich environment sculpt a fluted, horned shell brimming with plump meat and laced with a delicate vegetal flavor and sweet melon-rind finish.

Penn Cove Shellfish, Pride of the Pacific

Established by the Jefferds family in June of 1975, Penn Cove raises a variety of shelled delights and pride themselves on their exquisite looking and tasting oysters. Its location is what makes its shellfish superior: Penn Cove is close to the Cascade Mountains and its geographical shape captures the freshest mountain river waters, rich with minerals.

The Gritty Details:

Seed is grown in bags in the inter-tidal zone. The bags are naturally tumbled by the tides and wave action. Time to market is 2-3 years.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity:2.8% < 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: Medium tides, but strong currents typical of Samish Bay.
  3. Bottom Makeup: Clean sandy bottom
