    DECADENCE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

    Oysters have long been one of the most pervasive symbols of opulence and wealth, but this hasn’t always been the case. As late as the 19th century oysters were cultivated and eaten by the working class, but as they grew in popularity, they became scarcer and more sought after. Today, Greenfish aims to, once again, make this delicacy more accessible to all South Africans. Our oysters are farmed off the west coast, which imparts the distinctive salty taste of wild oysters, but without the environmental impact.

    CONTENTS

    12 x Medium Oysters (Approx. 50g-65g per oyster)

    *Our standard Oysters are delivered whole and unshucked to allow them to stay alive during transit. If you would like them shucked please leave a comment in the notes section.

    **Shucked oysters will arrive with the lid (top shell) on. To remove the lid all you need is an oyster knife to work under the lid and run it along the edge.

    ***We do not supply topless oysters as you lose the goodness and the juices during transit.

  • Instructions

    Your Oysters will arrive fresh, simply store in your fridge and use at your leisure (up to 2 days). If you would like your oysters shucked, please specify this in your order notes. Our shucked oysters arrive with the lid on the oyster, to stop the juices leaking out during transit, all you need to do is release the abductor muscle that keeps the lid down. We take great care when opening oysters, but some with softer shells may have breaks. If you order shucked oysters, please consume them on day of delivery.

    Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.

    *Our shucked oysters will arrive with the lid (top shell) on. To remove the lid all you need is a butter knife to work under the lid and run it along the edge.

  • Eco rating

    All our oysters are cultivated on the west coast of South Africa. Not only does this mean that wild oyster populations are not depleted, but since oysters are filter feeders, they improve water quality where they are farmed. Research has shown that this type of aquaculture also helps stabilise the beds and provides food for migratory birds.

    ECOSYSTEM IMPACT : Very low

    GEAR USED : Farmed on ropes

    SUPPORTING LOCALS : Yes

    DISTANCE TRAVELLED : 100km

    DOLPHIN / TURTLE IMPACT : None

    REPRODUCTION POTENTIAL : Very high

          The absolute best oysters!

          I ordered oysters from Greenfish to bring to a dinner party. They were delivered the same day and fresh as ever! Absolutely delicious! However, there are two things I would do differetly next time: 1. Get more (we could have just kept eating them). 2. I would ask Greenfish to shuck / partially open them for me, although we did have a laugh all having a turn to see who shucked them the best (unfortutaly it was definitely not me).

          Shucked oysters

          I ordered 5 dozen shucked oysters. I was very disappointed with the shucking. Some shells were broken. They were very difficult to open & as a result ended up with a lot of bits of shell in the oysters. This required rinsing them which defeats the object of having a fresh sea taste. I have shucked many oysters so am talking from a level of experience. I ordered shucked as I wasn’t up to opening 60 oysters but I won’t order again. Having said this the size was good & even though they were rinsed, the taste was good

          Perfect appetizer

          We served the oysters with my cocktail sauce: tsp tomato sauce, 1 squeezed lemon, 1/4 tsp horseradish sauce or you could use fresh minced garlic, tobasco and black pepper. Parsley for decor. Well, there just wasn't enough. We enjoyed thouroughly.

          Amazing quality and great service

          We ordered fresh oysters, perlemoen, giant tiger prawns and crayfish. I picked it up at their store. It was super professional packed and cooled. The team was very helpful, even if you had special requests. But most importantly; the products they sell are amazing. I do not know a better fish monger in SA!

          The oysters were fantastic 10/10

          We have ordered from many suppliers the last few years; I would rate Greenfish oysters the best Note: Remember to include note in the order for them to shuck the oysters; I forgot, but was still super delicious.
