Looking for shigoku oysters

Does anyone know of a retail location selling the Shigoku oyster? It's a Taylor farms creation and I can't get enough of them.

      They don't have them on their mail order and I have left messages for them.

        I believe they would fall under the general heading of "pacific" oysters.

          Those aren't them. The shigoku are tumbled by the tide and have a smooth deep cup.

                Maybe go old school and call them? I find that so many people try and rely on strictly "virtual" interaction that they forget the best way often is just talking to someone on the other end of the phone (assuming you can can get a live person?).

    2. You might try Quality Seafood at the Redondo Pier. They have all kinds of oysters, clams and shell fish live and in clean tanks. Also Santa Monica Seafood might still have them. Love oysters
