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.

I haven't tried the oysters as I reside in Australia but i order them for my parents who really appreciate the good size and freshness of the product. Rest assured we'll be ordering these oysters again!
It was just superb. Delicious, and fresh I will most definitely buy again. Thank you

I am very happy with everything from service to the taste, however I struggled to open them . I've never ordered for delivery but received help from 1 of your staff via whatsapp
Excellent as always
A fantastic company
I have been using Greenfish for about a year. Have ordered prawns and salmon but the most common request has been the West Coast oysters. I simply cannot heap enough praise on the professionalism of the business. Timeous delivery, easy tracking/ harnessing of technology, friendly staff and seafood of sublime quality. A joy to order each time. Thank you Maurice Levin
Fresh and delicious.
Wonderful! Super fresh and yummy oysters.
Happy I order some time and they are regular
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
