An oyster of great purity lives in the crystal-clear icy waters of Bedec Bay.
Oysters can filter up to 300 liters of water a day – the marine habitat where they come from and its concentration in phytoplankton are thus important factors. Glacier Bay oysters grow slowly in a nutrient-rich environment and mature for about 7 years suspended and rocked by the bay’s water. Its soft and plump flesh, presents a vivid, well defined flavor, with subtle fruity pear-like overtones. In a word, very fresh and only for aficionados.
