"An oyster, that marvel of delicacy, that concentration of sapid excellence, that mouthful before all other mouthfuls, who first had faith to believe it, and courage to execute?”
- Henry Ward Beecher

Once harvested, our oysters are:
North Coast Seafoods' rigorous system for keeping our oysters fresh, safe, and delicious is one of the most unique in the industry, and guarantees the purest, cleanest, freshest oysters possible.
Our oysters start their journey from their harvest locations before being brought to one of our many buying stations all along the New England coastline by one of the hundreds of local shell fishermen who supply us with their daily catch.
It is then inspected by one of our team members in the field to ensure it meets our strict quality standards. This is the 1st layer of inspection.
We then load the fresh oysters onto one of our clean, temperature-controlled trucks, which deliver it directly to our processing facility here in Boston or in Chatham on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
We then unload the oysters, and our quality control team inspects the product for the 2nd time before quality-testing in our microbiological lab. At this point, we are double-checking the oysters to check their cosmetic appeal, odor, shells, and anything else that might detract from their end quality.
The next step is one of the coolest parts of the process. We submerge all our oysters in our state-of-the-art purification system to maintain their peak flavor, texture, and freshness while also purging the shellfish of any sand, grit, or impurities.
The Oyster Wet Storage process:
1) Naturally purges any sand, grit, or impurities,
2) Maintains peak flavor, texture, and freshness, and
3) Results in maximum product safety and shelf life.
Storing our shellfish in pristine filtered seawater mimics the natural wild conditions your shellfish would normally live in. Your shellfish remains at its peak freshness until we harvest it out of our tanks for delivery.
Our Shellfish will continue to live naturally in our tanks, as they do in the wild, until we are ready to deliver the product to our customers. At this point, we will effectively re-harvest our oysters and clams from the ocean.
Before we ship any oysters, we wash, inspect, and hand-select the shellfish before packing and delivering to restaurants, retailers, and home consumers. This is the 3rd layer of inspection.
Every step of this thorough process results not only in phenomenal flavor, but also allows you to confidently trust the quality and freshness of all our oysters.
