Aww, Shucks! Turner's claims victory at the Boston Seafood Festival

Turner's Seafood at Lyceum Hall head shucker Ryan Kripp won "The Battle of the Shuckers" at the Boston Seafood Festival last week. Ryan bested shuckers from 18 Boston area restaurants through two heats and a final round. Shuckers were scored by their finishing time and presentation, and - as if that's not enough - time penalties were added for "hacked" oysters, which is shucker lingo for a broken shell or an oyster that is not completely severed. Congratulations to Kripp on his amazing shucking and first prize win! We look forward to seeing your shucking skills at the raw bar in Turner's Seafood in Salem soon. Battle of the Shuckers from Pangea Shellfish on Vimeo. (Ryan Kripp is the second shucker from the camera.)
