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.

We are now taking orders for Christmas! Please note that our last delivery date is Friday 20th December which means that you need to plan your Christmas seafood carefully this year.

Firstly we need to thank the incredible fire services that came to our rescue on Saturday evening, without their fast response, bravery and skill we would be about to tell a very different story.

How To Store Oysters At Home

How To Store Oysters At Home

If you look after your oysters they will be quite happy out of the water for about five days, maybe longer, they are much easier to look after than people think.
