Kachemak BayKachemak Bay, Alaska MapOyster bars nearbySuspended in trays in the deep, glacial waters of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. Delicate shells, slow growers.Avg. rating 5 Love0Species: PacificCultivation: SuspendedSalinity: ModerateSize: SmallRegion: Alaska 1 RatingSubmit a Rating BJ Dyer on September 2, 2015 at 6:49 pm Rating 5 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.
