At The Oyster Province we strive to produce thoroughly delicious prized oysters, which are highly nutritious, with most enjoyable qualities. An oyster with a cupped shaped shell that has good lustre, a firm tasty meat, and a strong abductor muscle (holds the shell closed when out of water) which not only adds to their great taste but keeps the oyster fresher for longer.

Producing the highest quality oyster by sustainable aquaculture, we aim to return the Australian angasi native oyster to its historical prominence both on the menu and maintaining a pristine marine environment.

Situated in south east Tasmania, on the Tasman Peninsula, the technology side of our business, Intertidal Oyster Solutions Pty Ltd (IOS), has developed a new way of cultivating oysters in deep-water marine farms. The new technology has been developed over the last 10 years and fully trialled at The Oyster Province site which has a depth of 10m. The IOS systems capture a wide range of cultivation conditions, from deep-water, to floating sub-surface, to inter-tidal, all within close proximity, neighbouring longlines; providing tailored environmental conditions to produce premium quality oysters.
