Freshest Oysters & Seafood Possible:
Our oysters & other seafood are packed to order by our shellfish farms and fisheries and smokery, for next day delivery direct to your address in mainland UK. This is why our seafood is the freshest seafood possible - direct from the source to your address. We email you the courier consignment number/s for your parcel/s, so you can obtain an estimated time of delivery and updates from the courier's website.


Top Tip to save on courier fees: Our shellfish farms/fisheries are located in remote coastal areas across the UK, so each has a separate courier fee per oyster farm/fishery. To save on courier fees, click on any seafood product, then scroll to the bottom of the same page to see other products available from the same producer under the same courier fee.


Live lobsters and crabs are booked under a By 12 Noon courier service: Delivery is usually made between 8am and 12 noon (on rare occasions by 6pm) on the scheduled delivery day. On very rare occasions delivery made be the next day.


All other seafood are booked under a By 4pm courier service: Delivery is usually made between 8am and 4pm (or rare occasions by 6pm) on the scheduled delivery day. On very rare occasions delivery made be the next day.


Order seafood 1 day in advance: We recommend you select your delivery date one day in advance for orders of oysters, mussels, clams, cockles and smoked fish. For example, if you would like your parcel delivered on Friday, then please select Thursday as your scheduled delivery date. This means your parcel should be delivered on Thursday, or on very rare occasions on Friday. Whether delivery takes one or two days, please be assured that your order of seafood will remain fresh and fine to consume. Upon receipt of delivery, simply store oysters and other seafood in the fridge. See how to store seafood below. When stored in the fridge, seafood will remain fresh for at least: oysters 5-7 days; clams, cockles and mussels 2-3 days; smoked fish 9-10 days; and smoked prawns 3-4 days from delivery.
