TASMANIAN OYSTER CO.

Organic oysters grown in pure southern waters

Tasmania is a beautiful, isolated island located 240km south of the Eastern tip of the Australian mainland.

 

We are surrounded by some of the most pristine waters in the world with unpolluted currents flowing north from the Antarctic region.

Tasmanian Oyster Co. oysters thrive in these cool, clean nutrient-rich waters growing into arguably some of the best in the world. But our oysters' journey does not start here, it begins in our hatchery, Shellfish Culture, where baby oysters (called Spat) are hand-raised using modern organic methods. ​

Once the babies reach 2mm in length they are transported to one of our four growing regions, all located along the Eastern Coast.

Our oysters grow in these pristine regions until they reach between 8 and 12cm in length, they are then hand-harvested​ before being exported to local & national restaurants, seafood specialist retailers and across the globe.

THE TASMANIAN STORY

It isn’t easy here. It never has been. People said it was impossible, and for too long we believed it. This is why, for Tasmanians, good enough is never good enough. We work harder, we follow our obsessions, we support one another, and we protect what makes this place different.

Being Tasmanian is the quiet pursuit of the extraordinary.
