Our oyster beds are set in CARANTEC in the north of the Finistère (on the northern coast of Brittany). In total, it represents more than 200 hectares of oyster beds. After 2 or 3 years there, the oysters are transferred to Riec sur Bélon to be refined, which needs from 3 to 6 months more.
Riec sur Belon is situated at the end of the “ria” (the estuary where the sea water joins the soft water is the river ” Le Bélon ” – 25 km far from its source.
The salty sea water mixed more or less in the fresh water of the river (according to tides) enriches the plankton, which constitute the basic food of the oysters.
