Lotta, Klemmings oysters
Klemmings oysters work with two kinds of oysters. It is “Ostrea Edulis”, also called European flat oysters, and “Crassostrea Gigas” or so called South Seas oysters. The oysters are wild and are picked by professional divers. The oysters are found from the shore to 15 meters depth.
The oysters are plucked from the first week in September to Midsummer becauce oysters have their reproduction period in July-August.
Oysters are, just like all other shellfish, a fresh product. Klemmings oysters deliver oysters to restaurants the same day they are plucked from the ocean.
