WELCOME TO THE FISHERY

We are the Colchester Oyster Fishery, suppliers of the finest shellfish to you at home, to restaurants and to wholesalers. At the heart of it, we are an oyster farm based on Mersea Island off the Essex coast, where we grow and harvest our own native and rock oysters that are renowned the world over.

Over the past 50 years we have grown to be one of the biggest importers of Canadian lobsters in the country and work hard to source the very finest sustainable shellfish from around our own beautiful waters and from further afield. 

If you love shellfish as much as we do, we promise we won't let you down.
