Bogues Bay

This is the first commercial incarnation of the Suminoe oyster (C. ariakensis), coming from a farm out in Chincoteague Inlet. The oyster isn’t as bad as Suminoes are advertised to be. It has a pretty, white, wide shell, firm meat, and a mild flavor. Not a show-stopper, but a pretty good impersonation of a virginica.
