just like oysters

to be a Chincoteague oyster, the oyster has to be in Chincoteague waters 24 hours by law - so they soak them for 24 hours

from the article below:
Even though native Chincoteague oysters were gone by the 1940s due to overfishing and disease (I heard mostly disease, like the borer worm)

[Oysters transplanted from the Chesapeake Bay into Chincoteague Bay] allowed them to be marketed as Chincoteague Bay oysters and also gave them a saltier taste than oysters from other areas

I guess with crabs, it just takes breathing in the maryland air and steaming them uncleaned

Sorry but not so...  They are all eastern oysters (Crassostrea virginica) also called Atlantic oyster or Virginia oyster. Even the "blue points" from up north are Crassostrea virginica.  Crassostrea virginica range from GOF to Canada. Johns is also right.  They farm oysters bayside then take them to Chincoteague to soak in the water for a few days.  Seaside oysters do taste different then bayside because of the saltier water.

However, there are no oysters in VA.   Grin

jack is right....and

not that I or any restaurant ever did this, but
people have been known to save and clean the prettyest oyster shells
than ploop a canned oyster on the shell - out of sight in the kitchen of course
then sprinkle with McDonald's french fry salt - it is very fine and easily disolves

the people would rave about the oysters and the salty delicious taste
instant chincoteague oysters

Then why are bluepoints.. Chinco's, malpeques,ches bay.. All are different shapes, sizes, different meat? If you cant tell the difference between those oysters then you need to eat more Wink

I believe you'll find that Jack is right if you look into it.
The variations in shell shape, texture, taste, etc., are all due to the environmental conditions where the oysters grow.

Well, then you need to go back and retract this post:"The chinco oyster strain is totally different from a bay oyster. If you cant tell the difference you havnt eaten enough.. And there still are beds of chinco oysters in chinco;"

No, what I'm telling you is if I take them and put them in the same salinity for 2 weeks, and then shuck them in a bowl - you won't be able to tell the difference. You're basing most of your analysis on the size and shape of the shell.

Bluepoints have a whiter meat Wink and the shape of the oyster inside is pretty much similar to the shell. Malpeques are the closest to chincos in my opinion. A bay oyster put into saltier water is still a bay oyster.. Lol. Just like " chincoteague shellfish farms" on the PAX.. Oysters are not even close to chincos in either shape, taste or texture Wink

I been raising oysters for about 10 years.  My best friend is a commercial oyster grower.  He does millions and millions of them each season.  Raises them in the Sound then sells them to a grower that soaks them seaside for 15 days.  FP, when you cross over the new Chincoteague Bridge, look on the south side at all the floats.  They are not raising oysters in them.  Wink
