Hengqin Oyster Farming

Updated: 2022-11-01


Surrounded by sea water, Hengqin boosts a favorable natural ecological environment for breeding oysters. Sandy mud of the beaches, smooth tide and calm waves, fertile water quality, and abundant plankton all contribute to the growth of oysters. Full-grown oysters are large in size, white in color, tender, juicy, and crisp in taste.

Hengqin Oyster Farming bypassed fishermen 200 years ago so that breeding in a stone-surrounded free range with rope-hung oyster devices caused evolution to enhance the delicacy. The technique was passed from generation to generation reflecting an oyster culture that is deeply rooted among the fishing people of Hengqin Island.

Hengqin Oyster Farming was listed as a municipal intangible cultural heritage in May 2016.
