K'awat'si Shellfish

With us, every shell tells a story, and every bite captures a legacy.

Grown on the remote west coast, in the pristine waters and traditional territory of the Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw Nations, K’awat’si Shellfish Company introduces the GwiGwi Oyster —a coastal gem cultivated through generations of traditional knowledge, sustained by the land and ocean. These are the Cold Water Treasures of British Columbia’s south-central coast and Great Bear Rainforest region.

K'awat'si Shellfish Company is an initiative of the K’awat’si Economic Development Corporation (KEDC)
