Shuck Portland

Lyf is a co-founder of Shuck Portland, a non-profit week-long event series in February raising money for oyster restoration projects on the Oregon coast. Check us out to see what's coming up for the 2021 event!

Battle of the Bays

Flying fish brings 3 Northwest bays worth of oysters to the Rogue Public House Pearl in Portland, Oregon for a battle to see which bay reigns supreme. Netarts, Yaquina, or Coos bay. It was a close battle, with the winner being Yaquina Bay, by just 2 votes.

Classes and Tours

From the kitchen to the coast, all the skills you need to bring home Flying Fish.

Our super-popular classes include Sashimi Selection and Sushi Rolling, and Advanced Knife Skills. We also lead group trips like Oyster Farm Tours, and Ocean Fishing Expeditions.

(Here's a preview of what you can expect once we're back in the fighting chair.)
