Did you know...
Porthilly Pacific (Rock) Oysters are responsibly and sustainably harvested from the River Camel Estuary, Porthilly, near Rock, Cornwall, England.

Established in 1980, this oyster farm is family owned and operated, with over 800,000 Porthilly Pacific Oysters located across four sites on both sides of the beautiful River Camel Estuary.

The River Camel Estuary is classified as Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by Cornwall Council. As a protected landscape, the River Camel Estuary has the same status and protection as a National Park.

The River Camel is classified as a Special Area of Conservation by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, and includes five Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

The name Camel is derived from the Middle Cornish “Cal-Em” and means “Crooked One”, which reflect the various twists and turns of the River Camel.

Cornwall Good Seafood Guide, and Cornwall Wildlife Trust recommend Porthilly Pacific Oysters as a responsible and sustainably harvested seafood product. This status endorses the excellent management practices carried out by the oyster farm. Cornwall Good Seafood Guide was established by the European Fisheries Fund, the Marine Management Organisation, and Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Fisheries Local Action Group.

Porthilly Pacific Oysters was one of three winners for the Best Pacific (Rock) Oyster Award at the British Oyster Championships 2015, which was held at Boisdale Canary Wharf London in November 2015. Eleven oyster produces from Great Britain and Ireland competed for the title, which was decided by expert judges who carried out blind taste tests and rated the oysters on appearance, meat-to-shell ratio, and flavour. Porthilly Pacific Oysters won the same award in 2013.

Porthilly Pacific Oysters are featured on menus at top restaurants and oyster bars in the South West of England and in London. For example, Hix Oyster and Fish House, Outlaw's Fish Kitchen, Number 6 Padstow, St Moritz Hotel, The Idle Rocks, and The Northall Bar at the Corrinthia Hotel.
