It is in 1975, in Port des barques, on the basin of Marenne Oléron, that begins this family adventure. Then 16-year-old, Claudie Seguin, armed with his knife in pocket and full of courage, decides to start the breeding and the refining of oysters.

Quickly joined by his wife Caroline, they improve ceaselessly their techniques, aiming to produce high-quality oysters, meeting the expectations of an always more demanding clientele.

In constant quest of innovation, they do not deny the ancestral techniques, but adapt them to optimize the quality of their production.

During almost 40 years, they will make every effort to pass on their commitment and their passion for their job as well as their respect for this exceptional product.

So, naturally, from 2012, their son Jérémy, aged 20 years and literally bathed in this environment since his youngest age, decides to join the family company.

Rich from this heritage and led by the same passion, he perpetuates the work committed by his parents. Allying "Innovation" and "Tradition", he perseveres ceaselessly in search of the best techniques of collectinging, breeding and refining.

Surrounded with a faithful and welded team, living with the rythm of the tides, they are proud to propose quality oysters you can find on slack of the best fishmongers and in the plates of recognized restaurants!

It is at the entrance of the estuary of the Charente river, facing Aix Island and « Fort Boyar » that the company is established. Besides the exceptional panorama, off the peninsula of Fouras, this location is reknown as the best collecting site of oysters in France. This naturally protected environment, rocked by the the estuary currents, its moderate salinity, allied with the nutritional contribution of the river Charente and the natural protection of Islands, Oléron, Madam and Aix allow optimal conditions for the development of the rising larvas.

Then, the oysters naturally grow, at the heart of the basin of Marenne Oléron in our sea parks. Raised in pocket, on the foreshore, they are stired by the currents and the wind, as well as by our care. During three years they keep growing in a most natural way. The unique soil of Marenne Oléron will contribute to their growth (thickness and flesh) as well as their exclusive iodized flavor.

Finally comes the time of the ultimate stage, the refining. Realized in our shallow clay ponds, this last phase of development gives the oyster its maturity. During several months, widely spread in our oyster beds, in a lightly salted water, they acquire their unique taste. The salt give way to the inimitable delicacy of the Oyster of Marenne Oléron. The flesh densifies and textures refined at the contact of the naturally filterd water, rich in plankton.

If mother nature is willing it, it is during this last phase of growth that the oyster will have a chance to meet the microscopic and exclusive algae of the region, the naviculus micro algae, which gives the oyster its green color and its unique hazelnut taste.
