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.
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.

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!
Delivery was very quick, but unfortunately almost half of the 24 oysters was off.
Fresh, plump and beautifully packaged, that was the oysters we received . Thank you so much Green Fish
With same day delivery, even in Gordon’s Bay, and such friendly people, what more can you ask for!
Thanks Greenfish for delivering the best oysters. It made our Xmas lunch so complete!

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.
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!!
FRESH yummy oysters
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.
