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 box 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.
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.

Dont often buy Oysters but when I do I now get them from Green Fish. Invited an Oyster lover to lunch and he has raved about the freshness and size of these Oysters - says it all I would think
Thanks again to GREENFISH for the Freshness and the service Excellence!!
Perfect fresh and succulent oysters. Had six when it arrived and kept the other six in the fridge. A week later they were still divine
What a wonderful experience. Fresh and tasty.
It would have been nice had you told us the oysters were not open . Who buys closed oysters ?? I had to quickly buy your oyster opener tool and even then we battled to open them . There were great but unfortunately I . Won’t order them again .
Hi Heather, Thank you for your feed back. Opening Oysters can be tricky until you have the nac for it. This is why we offer opening them as a free service for all our customers. Opening the oysters does shorten the shelf life, and they are best consumed the same day as shucking. I am sorry you missed the section that says we are happy to open them for you, we will look to improve this. For next time simply leave us a NOTE at check out and we will happily do this for you. We are glad you enjoyed them, even though you had to work a little harder for your tasty treat.

Was fantastically fresh and very neatly packaged
Good day Ryan I have forwarded this survey to my sister and brother-in-law who were the recipients of this gift of oysters. They were absolutely delighted and the service delivery from Greenfish was outstanding from my perspective. I am in the USA and the process was seamless and efficient, thank you. Please keep me posted on your email list for any specials and promotions as I have lots of family in SA. I attach a photo of the oysters being enjoyed in Kommetjie, Cape Town. Thanks to you and your team. C
Super fresh and clean and perfectly shucked!
Excellent service, prompt delivery and very good quality, although fresh shell fish have extra work opening oysters and cleaning whole mussels. Overall very enjoyable.
Ordering easy, delivery seamless. Fresh product, well packed. 5 star service and product.
We shared 24 oysters among 4 people and overall was absolutely delicious
Superb, shared with my farther in-law and will definitely continue to purchase this product.
Most of the oysters were very good but one was really off. It was slightly open and smelled very bad.
Absolutely delicious, large ‘meaty’ oysters, that announced that they were freshly harvested with every taste. A huge spoil (we had six each). What a blessing to taste something so delicious.
Delish, thanks a million :)
Excellent Oysters and Kingklip! Fresh and top quality
Wonderful packaging and great delivery service. Wonderful flavour when served with shallots, vinegar and a touch of pickled ginger, but next time I'll order shucked as even with an oyster knife my husband managed to get bits of shell all over the floor. Have already recommended to our neighbourhood group.
They arrived as fresh as the moment they were harvested. Really tasty
