WELCOME TO THE FISHERY

AT THE HEART OF IT WE ARE AN OYSTER FARM ON MERSEA ISLAND, WHERE WE GROW AND DREDGE OUR OWN NATIVE AND ROCK OYSTERS THAT ARE RENOWNED THE WORLD OVER.

Our oysters grow freely on the riverbed absorbing all the wonderful flavours from the marshes and saltings that run along side the pure waters in Pyefleet creek. Oysters have been grown on our oyster beds for hundreds of years, when Colchester was the capital of Britain the Romans towed nets of oysters back to Rome behind their ships.

The Fishery as it is today has been here on Mersea Island for over 50 years, where we have been constantly innovating and learning about our oysters and oyster beds. This has lead us to develop the Pyefleet Pure oyster, the cleanest and purest oyster of them all.

But it's not just oysters we sell, we work closely with  lobstermen from Essex and Suffolk all the way up to Northumberland to bring you native lobsters during the summer months. We also import only the finest Canadian Lobsters in the winter 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.

HEALTHY & DELICIOUS
