Our Leases

Our leases are situated between 3 to 7km from the Smoky Bay Jetty. We access the leases at low tide by barge, where we wade through the waters tending to the oysters.

 

Smoky Bay History

Smoky Bay has the perfect conditions for oyster farming consisting of large tidal flats and a deep channel that supplies the bay with cold nutrient filled water straight from the continental shelf.


In 1988 Smoky Bay's first Oyster lease was granted consisting of 10 ha and by 1990 a total of 87 ha was being farmed by 12 farmers.


In 1998 the District Council of Ceduna in conjunction with the oyster growers developed an area exclusively for the oyster industry consisting of 46 quarter acre blocks for oyster sorting sheds naming the subdivision Aquaculture Park.

 

There is now approximately 24 oyster farming companies operating from Aquaculture Park suppling over 30% of the states oyster sales.
