Also, are Blue Point oysters good? Blue Point Oysters have largely become a generic name for oysters harvested from multiple locations anywhere in the Long Island Sound in the New York & Connecticut oyster region. The result is that the flavor & brininess is all over the spectrum, from boring to quite good. They are a Bottom Cultured Oyster.
Similarly, it is asked, where do Blue Point oysters come from?
Any oyster from Long Island Sound can be called a Bluepoint. Most come from the Connecticut side. They are semi-wild: In the summer, beds of bottomland are cleared and fresh shell is spread on them.
