Wild Atlantic III

Wild Atlantic Oyster is the brand representing the oyster producers in Sligo Bay, on Ireland’s North West coast. Sligo Bay has numerous inlets with ideal conditions for the cultivation of oysters. Indeed, even the name Sligo (Sligeach in Gaelic) means “Shelly Place” a reference to the abundance of oyster shells found in the bay. Sligo has a history of oyster cultivation spanning three centuries;  oysters were exported from Sligo to hotels and restaurants in London since the mid-nineteenth century. Our producers specialize in the cultivation of the Pacific oyster species Crassostrea Gigas, which they source from their own shellfish hatchery on the shores of Sligo Bay.
