Our Romo Oysters are known for a fantastic fresh taste and a meat filling that we have not seen anywhere else. It is not farmed, but a pure and wild wildlife product.
Our customers say our oysters are in a class all to themselves - and we understand that well.
With the fresh seawater of the Wadden Sea as a source of food, and nature's fascinating shift between river and ebb, the large, beautiful wild oysters in the Wadden Sea around Rømø are thriving. The species is also called Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) and as the name indicates, it is an invasive species. In fact, it thrives so well in the fresh sea around Romo that it eventually poses a threat to our native species, including mussels, which constitute an essential food base for the many bird species that live in the Wadden Sea area.
Rømø Shellfish A / S has built a very gentle project, where we collect Rømø Oysters in the Wadden Sea and at the best banks in the Wadden Sea around Rømø.
At low tide we gently assemble the best and most meaty oysters, and then in small boats we sail them directly home to our expedition center, where they are carefully placed in our basins with running seawater. The fresh seawater from the Wadden Sea contains all the nutrients naturally derived from the oysters.
In this way we deliver the world's best Romo Oysters, while contributing to a healthier balance in the Wadden Sea by reducing an invasive species.
