Shuck ’em and Eat ’em: PEI Mussels and Oysters


Shuck ‘em and Eat ‘em

Prince Edward Island’s Malpeque Oysters and Blue Mussels have earned Canada’s smallest province a big reputation worldwide. “Ten years ago, customers were ordering 200 pounds a week,” says mussel man Brian Fortune of Atlantic Aqua Farms in Orwell Cove. “Now, they’re taking 16,000 pounds a week.”

With their sweet meat and glossy black shells, mussels have muscled their way into all the best restaurants, and supermarkets.
