Employing around 1,200 people annually, predominantly in the North West and South
        East of Ireland, total oyster production in Ireland was approximately 9,000 tonnes in
        2015.  Whilst the French market dominates Irish oyster exports, accounting for an
        estimated 75% of total sales, there is increased market diversification by the oyster
        sector with a greater share of exports now going into other European markets as well
        as into many markets in Asia.
        The quality of Irish oysters is globally recognised along with the quality of our
        environmental performance which is based on the principles of sustainable aquaculture.
        All of the oyster producers profiled in this directory are verified members of Origin
        Green which is the only sustainability programme in the world that operates on a
        national scale.  Independently verified, it enables Ireland’s producers to set and achieve
        measurable sustainability targets – reducing environmental impact, serving local
        communities more effectively and protecting the extraordinarily rich natural resources
        that our country enjoys.
