The Oysters

RRO™ is proud to lead the renaissance of the Chesapeake Bay. So come celebrate with us the amazing variety of flavors found within in this one-of-a-kind estuary.  Find out why the Bay is famous the world over for its seafood - and has been for centuries. To date we've reintroduced only a few of the famous oyster varieties (all native), from the sweet Rappahannock River oyster to the ocean-side Olde Salt. Stay tuned and we'll be introducing even more great varieties - all native, all aquaculture grown.

Rappahannock River Oysters

Location: Topping, Virginia
Salt Range: 13-17 ppt.
Species: Crassostrea virginica (native)
Grow-out Method: Aquaculture
Taste Profile: Deep cupped and mineral rich, with an understated saltiness that lets the oyster's natural flavor come though, our Rappahannocks offer up a sweet, buttery, full-bodied taste with a refreshingly clean, crisp finish. It's the very same oyster we started growing in 1899.

Salt Range: 17-22 ppt.
Species: Crassostrea virginica (native)
Grow-out Method: Aquaculture
Taste Profile: Drawn from the pristine waters of Mobjack Bay, Stingrays are the quintessential Chesapeake Bay oyster: sweet and mildly briny with a clean, crisp finish. Named after the Bay oyster's chief predator, these Stingrays bite back!

Olde Salts Oysters

Location: Chincoteague Bay, Virginia
Salt Range: 28-33 ppt.
Species: Crassostrea virginica (native)
Grow-out Method: Aquaculture
Taste Profile: The truest taste of the ocean, our Olde Salt oyster brings together a bold sea-side brininess with a smooth, clean follow-through. Grown off the coast of Chincoteague (think Misty), our Olde Salt oyster is more than a classic, it’s a legend.
