"If not us, who? If not now, when?" April 01 2020

Our aims and objectives are to work with oyster gatherers, universities, researchers, marine biologists, harbours, authorities and stake holders to restore the unique native oyster that is in decline on the Fal Fishery. We are currently applying for funding to deliver the projects under a Community Led Development Strategy and other UK funding schemes.

"If not us, who? If not now, when?"


A 2yr old can produce 500,000 larvae and only 1 might survive 12 months, a 4yr old can produce 1,000,000 larvae and 2 might survive, but after 4 years 1+1+2=4 might be left after harvesting, compared to maybe nothing left after harvesting a 2yr old!!


Less than 100 years ago 200 vessels sold 800 tonnes from the Fal Fishery, per season!
