Large Fresh Oysters | Live Box | Farmed on the West Coast | x12
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.
12 x Large Oysters (Approx. 76-90g per oyster)
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.
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.

GREEN FISH , yea or nay?
I was introduced to GREEN FISH by two friends and have eaten at both their homes from boxes of fresh catch. Fantastic at each visit. Now my turn with a couple of dozen oysters. Again excellent in terms of freshness of the catch, the follow up and delivery of the goods. I would recommend them to anyone with an interest for fresh catch at home.
They arrived at the time we specified, after which we transported them for a weekend away 1h30 away. When we unpacked them, they were superbly fresh, and delicious (and very well packed with ample ice). They were all schucked well (as requested) for not extra charge. Very impressed with the quality of the oysters and service by the team. Thank you
Deliciously fresh oysters
After a few disappointing and expensive oyster experiences eating out, i decided to buy the Greenfish oysters and wasn’t disappointed. They come well packaged, on ice, and with their shells loosened, these deliciously plump and live oysters were superb.
This company is professional and their oysters were really tasty and fresh. Good job guys
What a great and excellent experience The oysters arrived. On the day I requested Beautifully boxed on ice, sealed Once we served them … happiness all around Fresh , delicious and to know they are from a sustainable source just adds to the enjoyment Thank you Thrilled I have found you Jeni jedeikin

As always, our oysters were fresh, chilled and shucked...…they were truly delicious.
Freshest oysters I have had in a long time!
Everything was perfect, from ordering to timely delivery, to communication, and of course the oysters were perfectly fresh and absolutely delicious!!!
Lovely and creamy but found them quite salty which is a first. Generally satisfied with everything Here Fish has on offer. The Duo Box works very well for us.
Lovely and creamy but found them quite salty.

Always Superb Oysters and Mussels
We have been buying our fish, oysters and mussels from Greenfish for a long time now! we always recommend them to our friends too. The service is friendly and efficient and the product ALWAYS marvelous! keep up the good work!
Wonderful evening-friend, oysters and champagne! The best!
We ordered 12 shucked oysters to be delivered on a specific day and specified in the afternoon. This all happened and the oysters were delish, fresh and cold. We will certainly use them again!!
Normally I would ask for my oysters to be shucked before delivery but I read that it was way better to eat them as soon as you shuck them to retain the beautiful soup of seawater in each oyster. What a treat those oysters were despite the hard job of shucking them. Outstanding, great packaging and delicious. Thank you Greenfish.
Deliciously fresh oysters
Fantastic! Excellent quality and exceptionally well packaged. 36 oysters delivered in the afternoon on the 30th of December and the sealed container kept the ice well with only minimal leakage. The oysters were cold and fresh for eating on NYE! Thank you yet again for great service and quality GF team!
