Welcome to the Fishery

At the heart of it we are an oyster farm on Mersea Island, where we grow our own native and rock oysters that are renowned the World over.

Our oysters grow freely on the riverbed absorbing all the nutrients from the marshes and saltings in the Pyefleet creek.  

We work closely with lobstermen from UK and Canada so you can enjoy delicious and sustainable lobster all year round.

We work hard to source the finest sustainable shellfish from around our own beautiful island and from further afield so when you are looking for the very best shellfish; you know where to come.

THE FISHERY

The Temporary Lobster Room

The Temporary Lobster Room

It wasn't just the Oyster Room we lost in the fire but our water treatment plant which meant that our indoor lobster tanks and crab tanks had no water supply anymore.

The Oyster Village

The Oyster Village

We lost our Oyster Room in the fire last year, which was tricky as we are an oyster farm, so we have built a temporary oyster village.

Fire Update - A look inside the Fishery

We have been slow to update about the fire for no other reason than we have been flat out getting back up and running, but we thought it was time to see the Fishery.
