Guernsey Pacific Oysters (M)

SOLD OUT Guernsey Pacific Oysters (M)

Guernsey Pacific Oysters are cultivated and sustainably harvested by hand in inter-tidal waters at Fisherman's Beach, Herm Island, near Guernsey Island, Channel Islands.

Only three miles from Guernsey Island, Herm Island is small - about 1.5 miles in length and .5 mile in width. Herm Island experiences one of the fastest tidal ranges in the world. Every 12 hours, these tides carry nutrient-rich waters from far and wide, which roll over and through the oyster farm, and enable Guernsey Pacific Oysters to reach market size in only 18 months.

Available: All year.

In Stock: Yes.

Size: Medium (80-110g approx).

Freshest and finest oysters possible
Guernsey Pacific Oysters remain in the waters off Herm Island from seed until market size (takes 18 months to 2 years).

Once harvested, these oysters are cleaned and purified in filtered natural seawater, packed live to order in boxes, and dispatched by the oyster farm'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 Pacific Oysters in the fridge and consume within 4-5 days from delivery. Oysters can be consumed raw or cooked.
