A National Leader: 

B.C. is the leading producer of farmed oysters in Canada. In 2021, 8,000 tons of farmed oysters were harvested in B.C.—a wholesale value of $32 million! 


Oysters are low in calories and rich in nutrients like protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. They’re a good source of zinc, iron, and vitamin B12.

Did you know?

  • B.C.’s coastline provides the ideal location to grow some of the highest quality shellfish in the world.
  • Oysters get all their nutrients by drawing seawater through their gills and feeding on plankton. An adult oyster can filter up to 50 gallons of water per day!
  • Oysters are environmentally sustainable! Oysters do not rely on commercial inputs such as feed, fertilizers, or fresh water to be grown.
