  • How long do oysters last?
    Fresh oysters should be consumed within 2-3 days of purchase. It is important to keep them in a cool place (not refridgerated) and stored in a container with a damp cloth covering them to maintain their freshness. It is important to note that once oysters are shucked, they should be consumed within the same day for optimal freshness and safety.

  • Do your oysters have any pearls in them?
    No, we specializes in providing fresh and delicious oysters for consumption only. Our oysters are not harvested for pearls, and we do not sell any oysters that may contain pearls. However, we do offer a variety of oyster products such as shucked oysters and whole oysters that are perfect for cooking and enjoying.
  • What do I do with the leftover oyster shells?
    There are several ways you can make use of leftover oyster shells. One option is to crush them into smaller pieces and use them for gardening purposes. Oyster shells are rich in calcium carbonate, which is beneficial for plants. You can add them to your compost or use them as mulch. Another option is to use them for decoration. Oyster shells make beautiful and unique accents for your home or garden. You can create a mosaic, arrange them in a vase, or use them as a base for candles. Finally, if you live near the coast, you can return the shells to the ocean. Oyster shells provide a habitat for other sea creatures and help to create a healthy marine ecosystem.
  • How are oysters grown?
    At Port Stephens Oysters, we take pride in our sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to oyster farming. Our oysters are grown in the pristine waters of Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia. Our farming process begins with the collection of oyster larvae, which are then carefully placed onto recycled oyster shells. These shells are then placed in our grow-out tanks, where the oysters are given the perfect conditions to grow and thrive. These tanks are filled with fresh seawater that is constantly monitored for temperature, salinity, and other important factors. As the oysters grow, they are regularly checked and sorted to ensure that they are healthy and of the highest quality. When they reach maturity, they are harvested by hand and carefully packed for delivery to our customers. We are committed to sustainable farming practices that minimize our impact on the environment and promote the health and wellbeing of our oysters. We believe that by taking care of our oysters, we are also taking care of the ocean and the wider ecosystem.
