Do you love oysters and mussels? The Limfjord Oyster and mussels from the Limfjord have increasingly become a popular and reputable product and today constitute the largest fishing industry in the Limfjord. The Limfjord's very special salt conditions and currents provide the optimal growth conditions for oysters and mussels.
The Limfjord Oysters
Today there are two kinds of oysters in the Limfjord. The flat Limfjord oyster and the Pacific oyster. The Pacific oyster is an invasive oyster species that made its entrance into Danish waters in the 1990s. It originates from the Pacific Ocean around Japan and Southeast Asia.
The Limfjord is the only place in Denmark where this local European oyster still can be fished and at the same time fished sustainably. The Limfjord Oysters are found in only a few places in Europe and are highly regarded among the best in the world. The cooler temperatures as well as the salt and mineral balance in the Limfjord give a slower growth and thus also the particularly good consistency and characteristic taste.
