The Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea Virginia, is targeted by Chesapeake Bay watermen year round on both public and private oyster bottom. Watermen use traditional methods of harvest such as sail dredging, power dredging, patent tonging, diving and hand tonging to harvest oysters off the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay. Market size oysters (3" or larger) are brought into our facility directly off boats from both the Maryland and Virginia portion of the Chesapeake Bay. Oysters are either brought into the shucking room where the meats are extracted or they are graded by size and boxed.
Chesapeake Bay oysters are highly sought after by markets throughout the world. The meats of the Chesapeake Bay oysters are consistently fat and their mildly salty butter flavor makes them very versatile for cooking and raw consumption.
