    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 Large Oysters (Approx. 76-90g per oyster)

  • 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.

  • 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

          Unshucked

          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!

          Very Disappointing Oysters

          The Oysters where not all Opened / Shucked properly in Fact one was completely closed and we could not open it There was a few Milky ones which did not taste good In fact these where the worst Oysters we have ever had it was the First Time we received them from Greenfish and we will most certainly not be Ordering them again

          Amazing Quality, Amazing Service - Your Team Went Over and Beyond

          We have a sick dad and he loves Oysters, we ordered for him in the morning and by the afternoon he received them saying they were superb. Your team was out for delivery and turned back to shuck them as the request hadn't been received in the morning, I can honestly say I was amazed by how much effort and help went into getting our order to us. Thank you so very much for the fantastic service by Gabi and the team. We will never buy from anywhere else.

          Disappointed

          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. Regards Ryan Extract From Oyster instructions: "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.
