Named after the traditional Baќwam word for the oystercatcher bird, the GwiGwi oyster is one of the most northerly oysters in British Columbia.
Nourished by cold natural waters from the land and sea, the GwiGwi oyster grows off of the rich organic nutrients and plankton of this pristine region, far away from populated areas.
GwiGwi oysters are perfect on the half-shell – the taste is delicate but firm in texture, exquisite, fresh, and full of flavour.
At K’awat’si Shellfish, we redefine excellence in Canadian shellfish. Discover unparalleled freshness and quality with each and every GwiGwi Oyster.
The GwiGwi oyster embodies the essence of BC’s central coast. With delicate but firm textures and a briny balance that echoes the pristine Treadwell Bay, these oysters offer a taste of sweet creaminess, with a fresh flavour.
From seed to harvest and from tide to table, we’re with your oysters at every stage, employing innovative cultivation methods, strict processing standards, and thorough safety testing. This meticulous approach ensures that our oysters are not only delicious but also the safest choice on the market.
