Our Hatchery


The Tasmanian Oyster Co. hatchery, trading as Shellfish Culture Ltd., was founded as a co-operative in 1979 by the early pioneers of the Tasmanian pacific oyster industry.  


In its 30 plus year history, the Company has matured into a confident unlisted public company, with shareholders comprising of a mix of aquaculture producers and private investors.


Our professional hatchery staff are all highly trained and multi-skilled technicians who are dedicated to producing the highest quality shellfish seed in the world.

Our oysters journey


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.
