I’m Jason Kun, the founder and key oyster specialist of Island Oysters. I grew-up in Prince Edward Island where I spent my youth exploring the tidal flats of the South shore and brisk, active waters of the North. I’ve foraged wild oysters and mussels and spent many low tides digging bar clams, quahogs, steamer clams and catching rock crabs and lobsters barehanded. I founded Island Oysters to share my passion for fresh Canadian shellfish and the thrill of eating freshly shucked oysters!
I’ve toured many of the oyster farms from where we source our oysters on both coasts. With an extensive history in food & hospitality and a degree in Biology & Environmental Studies, I strive to offer an elevated culinary experience. The danger of the shucker’s calling, the thrill of eating freshly shucked oysters and endless accompaniment pairings all make for a lively cocktail hour at your next event. We look forward to having you join us for oysters soon!
