Walker Creek Oysters (Crassostrea Gigas), Pacific Oysters
Walker Creek Oysters are Pacific oysters named for the location in which they grow. Walker Creek is a freshwater stream flowing into Tomales Bay. These oysters grow in suspended trays where the subtidal waters of Walker Creek allow for their shells to harden and the oysters to grow. Walker Creek Oysters have a briny and sweet flavor with a clean finish.
Oysters are the environmental stewards of our waterways. Each individual oyster filters up to 50 gallons of seawater per day leaving our waters cleaner and better suited for nurturing young fish that use our estuaries as safe places to grow.
Our oyster farms work hard to keep our estuaries clean so that oysters can thrive. For instance, this means cleaning up any tools, wood structures, cages, and lines from the water in order to keep the environment for oysters and their counterparts clean and healthy.
