ROYAL MIYAGI OYSTER
Royal Miyagi Oyster - Sunshine Coast
Royal Miyagi oysters are a small to medium choice oyster from a secluded farm in British Columbia located on the Sunshine Coast. A limited number of Miyagi’s are harvested weekly making this oyster one of the hardest oysters to source from Pacific Canadian growing regions. The farm location was selected to take advantage of the nutrient-rich waters’ tidal flush from the Okeover, Lancelot, and Malaspina Inlets. Royal Miyagi oysters are grown on specially designed long-lines for a two-year period and allow the growing oysters to feed and grow without being setback by competing sea life. Before harvest, the oysters are moved to the beach to harden and shape the shells for approximately a six-month period. The Royal Miyagi oyster has a smooth texture and mild flavor with a vegetable-like finish.
