All our oysters are harvested from the Royal Bay of Grouville, on the east coast of Jersey. We have four main areas and two holding areas. The main areas in Grouville cover approximately 35 hectares in total, and this is where the majority of our oysters are grown and stored. The holding areas are smaller sites closer to shore.
Here the oysters spend at least half the day exposed when the tide is out to “harden” them off. They are kept in this area for at least two weeks before export to get them used to being out of the water and ensure only minimal stress levels during transport. This ensures that our Oysters are strong enough to stay closed and fresh during shipping.
Size grading, re-bagging, purification and packing is carried out in our shellfish processing plant a short distance from the shore in Grouville. It is not unrealistic to expect between 50 and 60 million oysters of various sizes to pass through the pack-house in any 12-month period.
