Great texture, sort of hearty and medium briny. Taste like the definition of fresh and deep water cold.love these oysters – order them every holiday season and bring them to all my holiday parties.

As a matter of fact they got wranker by the day. They arrived on Friday and what we hadn’t eaten had to be thrown away by Monday. Definitely not worth the price.

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.
