In Nelson Mandela Bay the oysters are cultivated on long lines one kilometer out at sea. Long lines are essentially ropes, suspended on the surface with floats and anchored on each end with mooring blocks. The oysters are cultivated in nets that hang down off the long lines. Here they receive a constant supply of high quality food, brought by the prevailing water currents.
We constantly grade the oysters to ensure that the growth is uniform and the oysters develop a deep, cup shape.
Oysters are harvested daily and after cleaning and a purification period in tanks, the oysters are hand inspected and packed into boxes.
We hope that the time and care taken to grow our oyster is apparent as you enjoy their fresh taste!
