Blackwater Oysters’ oysters are cultivated in the nutrient-rich waters around Tollesbury and the beautiful Mersea Island. Oysters from these creeks are famed for their excellent quality and flavour and have been admired the world over for many years.
Their oyster layings have supported oyster cultivation for over 500 years and been worked by Blackwater Oysters for over 30 years. When ready for market, the oysters are harvested by hand picking, & using their own fishing boat, Virley Native.
They cultivate two types of oyster; the Native and the pacific Gigas, commonly known as Rock oysters. Native oysters are typically available between September and April when there is an “R in the month”. Rock oysters are available all year round.
