"In January, oysterman Chris Ranger hit his £10,000 Crowdfunding target and took one step closer to his dream: to launch the first fish canning operation in Cornwall since the 1940s. Having fished along the Cornish coast for 15 years, Ranger has seen his key markets evaporate. Brexit killed exports, he says, and Covid wiped out hospitality sales. He believes canning his low-yield product of native oysters to preserve them is the answer – and he has a nation that’s dying to devour them from the tin.

Becca Millstein, who co-founded a company after noticing a gap in tinned fish innovation in the U.S., argues bringing this elevated tinned fish experience to the market comes at a cost. “These products are expensive because high quality, sustainably sourced seafood is extremely expensive.”
Our own range of canned produce comes direct from the Fal Fishery and its unique hand, sail and oar fleet... Our sailboat fishing season runs from October 1st to March 31st... During other times we still hand gather mussels, queen scallops and rock oysters, but only on the low spring tides... or we will harvest from our Aquaculture Research Site...
Our other Cornish products include rope grown mussels and farmed rock oysters from various sites around Cornwall, all our products are sustainably sourced from personal friends in the industry, and canned fresh within 24hrs to preserve quality...
We will soon be offering 'conservas' from other producers, that way you can order several cans from one place and make a date night out of it ;)
