Kumamoto (crassostrea sikamea)
Kumamotos are a well-known oyster, prized by many. They are popular amongst many for their fruity, sweet, melon-scented flavor and light brininess. Grown in Humbolt Bay, CA, these delicious bivalves are characterized by their deep, cornucopia-shaped shell.
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. 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.
