Mumbles oyster company

The Mumble Oyster Company was formed with the sole purpose of the sustainable
cultivation and restoration of native oysters at Mumbles.
We have a strong ethical bias at Mumbles Oysters having set out to lead the way in sustainable native oyster cultivation. Our company principles:
  • To consider the marine environment in all our activities from seed sourcing to harvest and beyond,
  • To produce the highest quality produce using innovative techniques,
  • To provide support and opportunities to researchers interested in oyster restoration and cultivation,
  • To work with the local community in order to maximise the collective benefits of a restored oyster fishery and to ensure that our operations do not affect theirs.

Dr Andy Woolmer

Andy moved to Swansea 20 years ago to study marine biology at Swansea University where he gained a PhD. He became increasingly interested in oyster restoration through his work with the shellfish industry and conservation groups. Andy runs another sister farm in Pembrokeshire (Atlantic Edge Oysters) where he grows top quality rock oysters. He now combines his love of the sea with his passion for good food with his aim to produce beautiful fresh oysters.
