In 1990, a visionary aquafarmer, Jose Trinidad Ruiz Mercado (Don Trino), set out to establish Oysters in the Estero Las Botellas, Bahia Magdalena. This pristine remote ecosystem along the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur is known worldwide as a primary calving bay for Grey Whales. The unpopulated region of bays and estuaries have long supported diverse and abundant wildlife.
Artesian harvest of marine life and bivalves continues today as it has for eons. More recently pioneers like Don Trino have embraced sustainable, environmentally sound aqua farming methodologies.
The wonders of nature have provided a unique combination of extremely deep water nearshore upwellings, multiple tidal openings and a 3-6 knot flushing current.
This gift supplies Don Trino's farm with world class water abundant in life sustaining nutrients. This marine environment creates what top marine biologists have coined "a bivalve heaven".
A constant exchange of fresh Pacific Ocean waters within this remotely situated aquafarm allows us to harvest & ship to order without need for flushing, purging or irradiating the Oysters.
BottleBay natural, farm fresh Oysters are environmentally and sustainably raised utilizing our proprietary advanced tumbling bag methodology, then harvested to order. Certified packaging and refrigerated shipping for arrival within 24 hours.
One look at the emerald hued shell of our Pacific (Gigas) will provide a hint of the abundance of life giving nutrients these Oysters are awash in from larval stage, nurtured husbandry to custom harvest.
Delivering the purest taste of the sea, a clean briny front sets the palette for fresh slightly cucumber crunch finish.
The lure of BottleBay umami will linger on the backside, inspiring you to consume or share a dozen more with friends.
