Kangaroo Island Oysters
Kangaroo Island - Natures Paradise is renowned for its clean, green environment including the pristine water surrounding this jewel in South Australia’s crown!
Surrounded by five marine parks, 1/3 of the island protected as National Parks and world recognised for its natural and unspoilt beauty, Kangaroo Island has a thriving historic seafood industry and attracts recreational fishers from around Australia. Southern Rock lobster, Whiting, Snapper, Abalone, Scallops, Mussels and many more species thrive in our intact pristine marine environment.
Farms located in Nepean Bay and Eastern Cove are accredited under the South Australian Shellfish Quality Assurance Program ensuring our water quality is high producing some of the best tasting oysters in the world. While native oysters were harvested in the wild on the Island back in the 1920’s, nowadays we farm the Pacific Oyster (sourcing spat from Tasmanian quality hatcheries) and the native Angasi .Oysters grown in this region are known for their size, quality and distinctly sweet yet salty flavour. Wholesale quantities are shipped to QLD, NSW and SA Wholesaler and sold direct to the public through The Oyster Farm Shop in American River, a small fishing village, located across the road from the largest commercial oyster farm on the island, Kangaroo Island Shellfish.
