The Angasi Oyster

Ostrea angasi is a native oyster to Australia that is commonly referred to as the flat oyster, mud, bluff, Port Lincoln or Belon oyster. It is an oceanic species, found throughout  river estuary habitats that have a significant tidal flow with the ocean. Its natural distribution spans from mid-New South Wales all along the southern coast of Tasmania and up into the Swan River in Western Australia. This particular species of oyster is also similar to its European cousin, the European flat oyster ostrea edulis.

 

The Angasi Oyster has a mild to strong taste that is a delight to eat, can be eaten raw or cooked and is very similar in taste to the Bluff Oyster of New Zealand hence being called a Bluff oyster. The Bluff Oyster is a delicacy to the Maori and the Angasi seems to be a great substitute to homesick Kiwi's.
