Grown naturally on the seabed at the River Fal catchment area, Fal Wild Pacific Oysters have shells that vary in appearance; and the oyster meat is distinctive in appearance as it takes on a light-green tinge, as it the oyster naturally accumulates copper in the River Fal. Oysters have a natural tendancy to accumulate zinc and copper, which is one of the reasons why the oyster is considered one of the top superfoods by nutritionists. These oysters are available for sale all year.

 

The Fal is a natural and wild fishery. The Fal catchment area can be described as the Truro Port Fishery, which covers an area of 2,721 acres, and includes all parts of Truro and Falmouth Harbours and the bed of Truro, Fal and Tresillian rivers.
