    This is one of my favorite oysters of all time. I’m told that they are grown in the coldest waters of any commercially-grown oyster. In the winter, they must drop the lines deep to keep the oysters from freezing. The water is also preternaturally clean.

    This means that Katchemaks are extremely slow-growing, which translates to crisp, flavorful, firm oysters. Not huge, but rich in flavor and texture.
