Farming oysters isn’t a new idea. They have actually been cultivated for at least 2,000 years.
The brisk flavor and seashore aroma of Pemaquid Oysters make them a natural for eating raw on the half shell, with a squeeze of lemon and a dab of hot sauce. Their firm texture also makes them ideal for frying, stewing and broiling.
Low in fat and high in protein, Pemaquid Oysters are also a good source of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
