The Cornish Fishmonger is a family run specialist online fishseller, involved in the fishing industry since its creation by Robert Clifford-Wing some thirty years ago.
Truro river and Fal Estuary
Sustainably harvested using lightweight dredges that are towed by traditional sail boats and rowing boats. The unique management of this fishery has resulted in a sustainable harvesting regime that has kept stocks healthy for 150 years.
Farmed on the shore in semi rigid plastic mesh cages.
Hand collection of feral oysters is one method to keep wild populations of this non native species under control. Wild oysters are much more variable in shape and can be very large. They must be depurated before consumption.
Live oysters are mainly served raw. All you need is a knife, a bottle of good wine, and a little lemon or tobasco and away you go!
