Menai oysters started life in 1994 when Shaun Krijnen, a marine biologist (MSc BSc) took over the site. At this point the farm in the Menai Strait, Angelsey, Wales had not been worked for 2 decades; now they provide oysters to top London restaurants as well as private and catering clients around the country.
Menai Oysters are cultivated in an Special Area of Conservation. Oyster are one of the few methods of farming that can work in such a symbiotic relationship with their environment.
The unusual tidal conditions in this area provide a moveable feast from a wide area for the oysters of the strait creating a distinctive merroir.
This is the location of Menai Oyster & Mussel Farm.
