Shellfish Depuration in Cornwall

Nobody wants to eat a sandy clam! Our depuration facility is located in Hayle, Cornwall. We cleanse oysters, mussels, and clams in custom-made seawater tanks for at least 42 hours to remove any microbiological contaminants that may have bioaccumulated while in the environment. By harvesting the cleanest shellfish available and placing the shellfish in a seawater environment that optimises their filter feeding activity, wet storage, relaying and depuration can be optimised.

Under EU Regulations, we are, an approved deputation centre for shellfish purification and we to operate under the local enforcement authority (LEA).
