We are an Oyster Farm

Our Fishery is on the shore of Pyefleet Creek on Mersea Island off the coast of Essex, where oysters have been farmed since Roman times. Our oysters lay on the river bed roaming with the mineral rich, brackish tides.

We have been supplying oysters and shellfish to the top restaurants, hotels and to your door for over 54 years. We pride ourselves on only supplying the finest quality seafood both from our own river and further afield.

Please Note: At the moment we are only able to deliver to you on Thursdays and Fridays.

Fishery Favourite Recipes

Langoustines with lemon & pepper butter

Langoustines with lemon & pepper butter

This langoustines recipe is perfect for dinner parties – quick, a bit showy and totally delicious.
Smoked Mackerel Pate

Smoked Mackerel Pate

Smoked mackerel pate is a Fishery favourite, but it also divides us - those who add horseradish and those who don't. I am a horseradish fan, but you can leave it out of the recipe if you prefer.
Scallops and Cauliflower Puree

Scallops and Cauliflower Puree

Scallops and cauliflower are a match made in a sweet, creamy heaven. Just be sure to blitz the cauliflower for long enough so to get a really smooth creamy puree.

What's a Cracked Crab?

What's a Cracked Crab?

We have added a new product, a cracked crab. We know that it can be daunting when you order a cooked crab, it arrives and then what do you do with it? What parts can you eat and what exactly are dead mans fingers? 
New Smoked Salmon

New Smoked Salmon

We have been trying to find a new smoked salmon and it turns out that we didn't have to look very far, just to Maldon a mere 16 miles away and to a friend Darcy, who used to work at the Fishery.
