These Canadian treats have a unique burst of flavor reminiscent of the exact environment in which they’re grown: medium-high saltiness and a crisp bite packed into firm meats. Their appearance is consistent, with pearly white shells and unique tear drop shapes that are unmistakably Fins.

About Fin de la Baie Oysters

Harvest location: New Brunswick, Canada

How they’re grown:
 Fin de la Baies hail from an ecological marvel known as “the end of the bay” (the literal translation of the name!) on the Tormentine Peninsula up in Canada. They’re top cultured, meaning they’re grown in floating cages suspended at the top of an algae-rich ocean layer. These oysters take 4-5 years to develop enough in size and quality to be harvested, but we’re ok with that! As Tina Turner says: don’t rush the good things in life…

Why they’re unique: 
The Bay of Bouctouche is fed by 2 rivers and is sheltered and protected by an undeveloped 6-mile long dune…one of New Brunswick’s longest! This particular area is home to an eco-preservation that protects the rare plants and animals that inhabit the dune. The sparse population and the clean, frigid waters of the Northumberland Strait create perfect conditions for growing a cold water oyster!

Story: 
For Wayne, growing oysters started as a hobby but transitioned into a full-time family business in 2015. An engineer by trade with many years in the transportation industry under his belt, he is the jack of all trades out on the farm. The founders of Little Shemogue Oyster Co. had backgrounds in seafood processing and shipping which helped to modernize the business and make it easier to bring these tasty oysters into the US.

Oyster FAQ

How long do my oysters keep?

Your oysters keep in the refrigerator for 5-7 days!  You can order a day or two early to make sure you have them in time for your gathering.  They are totally fine hangin’ out in the cool air.  

How do I store these bad boys?

When you receive your package, pull them out of the box (these guys need a little fresh air!). Grab a mixing bowl and throw the mesh bag in the bowl so that the oysters don’t leak all over your refrigerator. Grab a damp cloth and throw the cloth over the bowl.  You are good to go for the next 5-7 days. Doesn’t hurt to dampen the cloth each day to keep them moist and chilled.

Should I keep them on ice?

Only put the oysters on ice before service.  The oysters will actually die in the melted fresh water so do not store the oysters on ice.  They will not like this.

How are they shipped?

We ship using FedEx Overnight service. You will receive tracking info after the label has been printed the day before your oysters are set to arrive.  We do not require a signature – Fedex will leave your package at your doorstep.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Short answer: YES!

Our ClimaCell thermal liners are made of 90% FSC certified virgin kraft paper and corn starch, which allows you to recycle the insulated liner at home along with the cardboard box.⁠

Not only are the liners water repellant, they’re just as insulating as traditional styrofoam AND they can be recycled up to 5 times. Saving the planet has never been easier.⁠
