We recommend that you eat the shellfish as soon as possible to enjoy them at their best.

If you are not using the shellfish right away, they need to be stored in as cold an environment as possible.  

     

 MUSSELS   

  • Place the net bag of Mussels into a bowl or an open container.
  • It is best to leave the Mussels in their net bag when storing. This keeps the mussels nice and tight and reduces water loss.
  • Cover with a damp tea-towel or damp newspaper before you put them in the fridge. This will help prevent the mussels from drying out.
  • Please do not immerse any shellfish in water.
  • Mussels can be stored for 3-4 days after delivery

  • Clams should eaten as soon as possible within 1-2 days of delivery

 

OYSTERS

  • It is best to keep the oysters in their timber basket with the lid on. We pack them with seaweed which helps to keep them moist and fresh.
  • It is also important that the oysters are stored with the deep shell (cup side) down to retain their wonderful juices
  • Never immerse the oysters in water
  • The oysters can be stored in their basket for up to 1 week after delivery
  • Store between 4C & 10C so not necessarily in the fridge. Your garage or shed may be OK should outside temperature be suitable.
