Susanna for SeaFest
Because the waters around Cortes Island are closed to shellfish harvesting, this year the organizers of Seafest are purchasing oysters from Macís Oysters of Fanny Bay, who in turn obtain the oysters from the west coast whose waters are clear of red tide. Fisheries and Oceans Canada are responsible for the opening and closing of shellfish harvest areas. The west coast waters are open and oysters in cooked dishes are certified safe by Macís Oysters. Our raw bar will be serving oysters processed and certified safe by the Sawmill Bay Shellfish Company.
