Bivalves and Samphire

With unique natural characteristics, the Ria of Aveiro is one of the best areas in Europe for bivalve production.

In harmony with Man and Nature, the process is 100% natural and foments the region’s development sustainably. At Ostraveiro, we practice the aquaculture of clams and cockles. Whilst still in the seed stage, the bivalves are placed on the floor of the salt pan and grow naturally, according to the rhythm of the tides, which is reflected in their quality.

Due to its elevated salinity levels, this magnificent area is also perfect for the growth of samphire (Salicornia), a plant used as an alternative to salt, which is very tasty and nutritious. Samphire is increasingly appreciated for its quality and nutritional value which come from the storage capacity of its stalks.
