Our cultivation procedure begins when we import 3-4mm seed oysters from hatcheries in Guernsey, USA or Chile. The oysters then begin the growth cycle at an oyster seed production facility in Namibia.
These 3-4mm oysters are stocked into a floating nursery .The oysters are held in boxes and water is pumped through them in an upward motion. This system is called upwelling. The oysters grow rapidly and reach a size of 15-20mm in three to four months.
