*Mothers Day Special* Live Scallops & Oysters

1 review

A kit with two seafood sweethearts, 2 dozen live scallops and 2 dozen oysters, the perfect pairing for Mother's Day brunch.

About the Scallops: 

These specific scallops are grown by Father-Son duo Marsden and Bobby Brewer of Penobscot Bay Scallop Farm, founders of The Maine Aquaculture Co-op. The Co-op exclusively grows Sea Scallops in the nutrient-rich waters of Penobscot Bay. The Co-op is comprised of Maine fishermen and aquaculturists seeking to expand Maine's Seafood producing industries, diversifying income opportunities for Maine fishermen and strengthening coastal communities. 

The Maine Aquaculture Co-op pioneered scallop farming in Maine with the intent to sell the whole scallop, as is a common practice internationally. Mirroring commonly used methods from Japan, farmers in Maine collect wild spat each fall from the surrounding waters and allow the spat to form a shell and grow through the winter. Once hardy enough to handle, the farmers "seed" their farms with these baby scallops during the summer months. Over the coming months and years, farmers then tend to their farms by optimizing growing conditions, keeping the scallops free from predators and with enough space to feed freely. Depending on the size harvested, a Maine-grown sea scallop could be up to 3 or 4 years old and have been handled numerous times during its time on a farm. Marsden and Bobby grow their scallops to market size using lantern nets, as shown in photos.

Delicious Scallops, Briny Oysters, Excellent Service! 5 Stars!

It was very special to be able to enjoy live scallops in the shell with coral attached - common in France but extremely rare in the U.S. Although the size of small bay scallops, they were fantastically sweet and tender. If you like very briny oysters, these Glidden Points are the way to go when raw, or a nice size and juicy enough to make great grilled recipes, as well. The shipment came exactly on time and came well chilled and packed. Fine service and quality!!!
