Oysters Straight from the Source.

GwiGwi Oysters

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.
