Eel Lake, Nova Scotia   View on Ocean Map

Tray-grown by Nolan D’Eon for nearly 20 years in the clear, brackish waters of Eel Lake in the town of St. Anne de Ruisseau, near the southwestern tip of Nova Scotia, which makes Ruisseau oysters much closer to (Gulf of) Maine oysters than to the other Nova Scotia oysters grown on the Straits of Northumberland. Rarely found outside of the Maritimes and Quebec.

    These are highly prized in Canada, and the nice ivory flesh and clean flavor hint at how great they could be, but in January they were thin and very, very mild. Wish they were called Eel Lakes!
