Sinku

Sinkus are identical oysters to Pearl Bays, but suspended in trays fifteen feet deep instead of on the surface. Not much phytoplankton thrives that far down, so the oysters’ diet consists of more zooplankton (microscopic animals). This gives a less vegetal flavor—no cucumber or seaweed here—and more of a mild, cold milk taste. The cold, deep water keeps them nicely crisp—though not as crisp as Summer Ices, their deep-sea-diving siblings.
