BEAVER TAILS OYSTER® – Narragansett Bay, RI

Beaver Tails oysters are grown from planted seed at Salt Water Farms in the East Passage of Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. Held in suspended trays as deep as 20 - 40ft. below the surface, Beaver Tails oysters offer the true taste of open ocean water that pushes its way up into glacially cut passages of Narragansett Bay.  Beaver Tails oysters are cleaned, graded and replanted several times during their grow-out cycle. Beaver Tails oysters will reflect its name by a range in size and shape characteristic of a beaver’s tail. Available year-round, and an American Mussel Harvesters’ exclusive.

  • Place the Oysters in a colander, and rinse them with cold running water. Scrub each shell with a brush to remove any dirt or debris. 
  • Place the oyster in between a kitchen towel with flat side up and hinge sticking out (where shells taper together). To protect your hand, you can also fold a kitchen towel lengthwise into thirds. Wrap the kitchen towel over one hand and use it to hold the oyster firmly on a flat surface.
  • Using an oyster shucking knife in the other hand, place the tip of the shucking knife at the base of the hinge, twist the knife using pressure, then without the pressure, lever the knife upwards, or twist it til you pop the hinge open. Buy Oyster Shucking Knife here
  • Wipe your knife clean if there are debris, then slide the knife under the top shell to release the oyster by severing the muscle and remove the shell. Be careful not to tip the oyster and lose all its liquor when you handle it.
  • Inspect for any shell fragments and use the tip of a clean oyster knife to remove it.
  • Now slide the knife under the oyster severing the muscle from the bottom shell. Push the oyster around to make sure it's completely free. 


Keep your Oysters cool and dry in your refrigerator (no lower than 33°F). Do not seal them in air tight containers. The best way to store them is in their bag, inside a large bowl, with a damp kitchen towel over the top. Check your kitchen towel periodically to make sure it's always damp. DO NOT store your Oysters underneath or directly on ice. Oysters will die if they sit in fresh water.

Oysters are best consumed within 24 hrs. If properly cared for, they can keep in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.  

Do not consume bad Oysters that are dry or withered with a cloudy appearance and foul smell.  Fresh Oysters are plump with a glossy tan color and smells fresh and mild like the ocean breeze.
