Cornish Native Oysters (S-L)
Cornish Native Oysters are wild and sustainably fished by sail and oar vessels from traditional Native Oyster beds in sub-tidal waters at the River Fal Estuary, Falmouth, Cornwall, England.
The name "Cornish Native Oysters" has been used to describe Native Oysters from the River Fal since Roman times to date.
Governed by ancient laws to ensure sustainability of wild Native Oyster stocks at the Truro Port Oyster Fishery: Native Oysters from the River Fal may be fished the traditional way from 1 October to 31 March each year by licensed oyster fishermen, who must use sail or oar vessels and hand-hauled dredges to fish for these oysters. No motor or mechanical power is allowed.
Available: Seasonal - 1 September to 31 March each year.
In Stock: Yes. At times, Native Oysters may be unavailable due to adverse tides and/or weather.
Size: Small (60-80g approx), Medium (80-100g approx), Large (100-200g approx). These Native Oyster sizes are also known as Grade 3 (Small), Grade 2 (Medium) and Grade 1 (Large). We do not sell Grade 4 (Extra Small) and we ask the oyster fishermen to return these to the water in order to help re-populate and sustain Native Oysters within the fishery.
Freshest oysters possible
Cornish Native Oysters remain in the River Fal Estuary from seed until market size (takes 4 to 5 years).
Once harvested, these oysters are cleaned, purified in natural seawater, and packed live to order in boxes at the oyster fishery's depuration and dispatch centre (Monday to Thursday) for next day courier delivery to our clients' addresses in mainland UK (Tuesday to Friday).
Store and consume
For the freshest and best flavour, store Native Oysters in the fridge and consume within 2-3 days from delivery. Oysters can be consumed raw or cooked.
