The seasonal Native oyster (ostrea edulis) is native to North-West Europe. It is fairly flat and almost round in shape. The Mersea Native was recently awarded Presidia status by the Slow Food movement. This award aims to protect the Native, which is under threat, but also highlights its exemplary quality.
