Buy Fresh Bluepoint Oysters Online

Blue Point oysters are harvested from multiple locations throughout the oyster region of Long Island Sound and are known for their brininess, firm texture, and sweet aftertaste. Blue Point oysters were first harvested in the 1800s near the town of Blue Point, Long Island, which is where these wonderful oysters get their name. Known for their robust, wild flavor, Blue Point oysters quickly became the favorite oysters of the northeastern United States.

To protect copycat oysters from borrowing on the the Blue Oyster name, the New York State Legislature passed a law in 1908 stating, “No person, firm or corporation shall sell or offer for sale any oysters, or label or brand any package containing oysters for shipment or sale, under the name of Blue Point oysters, other than oysters that have been cultivated in the waters of the Great South Bay in Suffolk County.”

Today, Blue Point Oysters generally refer to any oyster harvested from Long Island Sound, and when you buy fresh Bluepoint Oysters online from Boston Sword & Tuna, you can feel confident that you are getting premium Bluepoint Oysters.
