Organic Oyster

The organic oysters are farmed on the same ponds as the shrimps, in an integrated culture system. They feed by filtering phytoplankton from the water and their taste reflect the health of our environment.

PRIMAR produces in its laboratory the seeds of the native oyster Crassostrea gasar. These seeds placed into our culture ponds are monitored from hatchery until commercialization and present full traceability throughout the entire cultivation process.

PRIMAR sells fresh, alive and depured organic oysters to the local market. Depuration is the last step in the cultivation process, consisting on immersing the organisms in filtered and sterile seawater for 24h in order to empty the digestive tract and enhance food safety.

Monitoring of both the water and flesh quality are performed periodically through laboratory analyses.
