Daisy Bay Oysters from Prince Edward Island, Canada

As Boston’s first and only shellfish company specializing in oysters, we take great pride in our oyster
selection. Our vast network of harvesters spans both coasts of the United States and Canada.
Over the years, we have built a huge library of oyster knowledge. In 2010, we pioneered the Oysterology®
Program, an oyster profiling program designed to educate food preparers and consumers. We make all
of our resources available to our customers to help you promote your oyster program.

Pacific Ocean

Atlantic Ocean

We carry over
70 oyster varieties
throughout the year.
Why so many? Because that’s what makes us oyster experts. We service customers
who are looking for just one variety as well as those who want to switch it up weekly.

Our oyster selection includes both Atlantic and Pacific varieties.
Atlantic varieties are available in 100 count bags and Pacific varieties are available in 120
count bags. Availability may vary depending on the variety and season. Visit our website to

We are on the Standish Shore
Oyster Farm seven days a
week, all spring through fall
if the weather allows. Our
oysters are bottom planted on
the ocean floor, which allows
them to grow free and develop
beautiful hearty shells.

We grow our own too.
In 2010, we acquired our own oyster farm in Duxbury Bay, Massachusetts. Our Standish
Shore Oysters are premium Duxbury oysters grown with lots of love and care. We cull
each oyster by hand for quality and shape, and only the finest oysters make it into our
bags. Visit our website www.standishshoreoysters.com to learn more.

We have strong mussels.
No shellfish program would be complete without Blue Mussels, the most widely
consumed mussel in North America. Our selection includes farmed and wild
varieties to provide the best option for your needs.

HOLLANDER & DE KONING “DUTCH-STYLE” MUSSELS
Available in 10 lb bags; approx. 15 mussels/lb
Grown in the waters of Mount Desert Island, Maine, Hollander mussels
are in a league of their own. Farmed, but bottom-grown naturally,
these mussels are clean and have superior meat content. These are
truly premium mussels, and we are proud to be distributing one of the
best mussels in North America.

WILD CAPE BAY MUSSELS
Available in 10 lb bags; approx. 10 mussels/lb
Harvested from Cape Cod Bay, our Cape Bay Mussels are large
beauties that range from 3 to 4 inches in size and have full meats.
This is a great wild and local option from Massachusetts. If you’re
looking for a large mussel, these will not disappoint.

CONFEDERATION COVEPEI MUSSELS
Available in 10 lb bags; approx. 20 mussels/lb
One of the best mussels out of Prince Edward Island, Confederation
Cove mussels are consistently clean and beautiful. These ropecultured mussels are must-haves on any seafood menu. Of all the PEI
mussels available in the market, this is the one we stand by because
we can count on its quality.

Hollander & de Koning
mussels are the only “Dutchstyle” mussel grown in North
America. The de Koning family
has been farming mussels for
six generations since 1776.
Cultivated in the pristine waters
of Bar Harbor, Maine, the
mussels have a fuller and richer
flavor than rope-grown and
pole-grown mussels.

Clambakes have been a New
England tradition for over
2,000 years. New England
Native American tribes would
cook their fresh seafood in
large sand pits along the
beach. Today, clambakes
are the quintessential New
England activity and a favorite
summer pastime for many
around the nation.

We keep
our clams
in shape.
As a New England shellfish
company, high quality clams are a
must. Most of our hard shell clams
are wild and locally sourced. And
when it comes to steamers, we
built our own wet storage system
just to keep them “Perfectly
Purged” clean.

HARD SHELL CLAMS
Available as Littleneck, Topneck, Cherrystone, and Quahog
Our hard shell clams are indigenous to the East Coast. We buy from
cold New England waters, which means better shelf-life and superior
flavor. Our hard shell clams are harvested primarily from Falmouth and
Cape Cod, and these coastal ponds produce the sweetest clams we’ve
ever tasted. The flesh is beautifully colored peach and full of tender
meat. We supplement with clams of equal quality from other areas of
Cape Cod, Buzzards Bay, and Rhode Island.

STEAMER CLAMS
Available Perfectly Purged® or Rinsed
We buy high quality Maine steamer clams, pick out any broken or
oversized product, and rinse them clean with very gentle care. Most
of our customers prefer our Perfectly Purged® steamers, but we do
set aside rinsed steamers for customers looking for a less expensive
option. As the name implies, these clams are usually steamed open and
taste especially delicious steamed in white wine.
Our signature Perfectly Purged® Steamers are wet-stored for a few
days to purge out any sand or grit. After wet-storage, we rinse them
again and do another quality check before packing them. We bubble
wrap the bottom, middle, and top, and keep it cool with a gel pack.
Packing is the most important step because it results in a 100% yield of
the most tender and flavorful steamers shipped to you.

Shucked and
ready for you.
As much as we like our shellfish raw on a
half shell, we also enjoy them deep fried,
baked, and stewed. That’s why we carry
shucked shellfish year-round because we
know we’re not the only ones who love
them cooked.

SHUCKED WILLAPA BAY OYSTERS
Available in 4 lb half gallons
We are so happy with the quality of this product that it is the only
shucked oyster we carry. Willapa Bay oysters are the plumpest
and sweetest shucked oysters we have ever tasted. They hold up
amazingly well when deep fried or used in stews. They are also
perfect for baking and broiling.

SHUCKED FRYING CLAMS
Available in 8 lb gallons

SHUCKED SURF CLAMS 
Available in 8 lb gallons; Strips or Chopped (see below)

Fryers or “Whole Belly Clams” are shucked steamer clam meats.
As the name implies, they are deep fried and usually served with
tartar sauce along with French fries. They are a true Massachusetts
summer tradition!

Chopped Atlantic surf clams are most often used in chowders or
soups, but they are also great for stuffing clams and making fritters.
Clam strips are great fried in clam strip rolls or plates. We carry this
item because of its consistent 6 lb meat yield per gallon.

ALL-LEG PEEKEYTOE MEAT
Available in 8 oz or 16 oz
COMBO MEAT
Available in 16 oz

We can help if
you’re crabby.
DOUBLE SCORED CLAWS

We partnered with the Northeast’s best
crab processor to bring you the freshest,
ready-to-serve Jonah crab meat available.
Production is done in real-time to order,
so your crab arrives from ocean to plate
as quickly as possible.

CAP-OFF COCKTAIL CLAWS

MANILA CLAMS
Available in 10 lb bags
Our manila clams hail from the Pacific Northwest,
and after a long flight from Seattle, Washington, they
can get a bit tired. We wet-store them in our HACCP
certified seawater system to rejuvenate them and
increase their shelf-life for you and your customers.
Expect a petite, tender, and sweet clam.

We have it all.
We used our best judgment and decided
to carry the following products because of
their popularity and superior quality. Please
note that some of these items are for
pre-order only, so please call us to check
availability. We hope these items will excite
and delight your customers, especially on
that chalkboard menu tonight!

COCKLES
Available in 10 lb bags
Our cockles are harvested from the wild beds of
southern New Zealand. Southern cockles are our
cockle of choice because of their superior quality
due to the colder waters in the southern latitudes.
Cockles have similar applications as Manila Clams
and are great in pastas and appetizers.

UNI TRAYS
Available in 60 g trays
LIVE SEA SCALLOPS
Available in Medium and Jumbo
Live sea scallops are specially ordered because our fishermen harvest them on day-boats in Cape
Cod waters. They are live when we ship them, so they arrive to you fresh.

CAPE BAY SCALLOPS
Available by the pound
Also known as Nantucket Bay Scallops,
fishermen drag these beauties up and
shuck them the same day.

LIVE SURF CLAMS
Available in Medium and Large

LIVE SEA URCHIN
Available in 10 lb boxes

Our surf clams are harvested in Cape Cod
Bay year-round. These are one of the
most flavorful clams on the market. Their
meats are used for sushi, clams strips and
chopped clams.

Harvested in Gloucester and surrounding towns,
live sea urchins are a great fall item. Prized for
their uni, urchins are harvested by diver from
September to April.

Harvested out of Gloucester where
we also get live sea urchin, these
ready-to-eat uni trays are great
for sushi and many other raw
preparations.
