Oysters raised in salt marsh ponds
Claire salt pond cultivation
We produce three types of oysters:
Our oysters never leave the claire salt ponds in St-Clément-des-Baleines. When we buy our oyster spat in Vendée, each spat is only 2 mm long. They go through their first growth cycle in downwellers with screens on the bottom.

Next, we transfer them to lantern nets for the pre-growout phase. The last step is finishing, when the oysters live on the clay bottoms of our claire salt ponds.
