King Tide Oysters
Harvest Method and Location: Farmed in Carlsbad, San Diego.
Description: King Tide oysters are sustainably farm-raised in southern California. They are grown using method that involves suspending the oysters from 4-16 feet deep creating a depth variation they would experience in the wild only during a king tide, hence the name! They feed on plankton that occurs naturally in the lagoon where they are grown which allows them to be considered a species with a small carbon footprint due to this sustainable method of farming.
