Fanny Bays were one of the first BC oysters to become widely available, and they’re still considered the archetypal BC oyster—smooth, but with a pronounced cucumber finish. The town of Fanny Bay sits on Baynes Sound, but faced with a choice on an oyster list between a Baynes Sound and a Fanny Bay, which would you go for? The shells are beautifully fluted, as we expect for a tray-raised oyster. You never get a bad Fanny Bay. Somebody is practicing rigorous quality control in the Fanny Bay culling house.
