The Queen of Oysters


Special Quality Of Mali Ston Oyster

Mali Ston oyster is European flat oyster (lat. Ostrea edulis), one of the most valued species of oysters in the world. It has a Protected Designation of Origin mark and it is inscribed into EU Geographical Indications Register.

Mali Ston oyster is the name for the European flat oyster Ostrea edulis (Linnaeus, 1758) which eventually became known outside the Dubrovnik area.

The long tradition of oyster farming stretches from the ancient times, through the Dubrovnik Republic until the present day. The importance of Mali Ston oysters in terms of economy and gastronomy is especially noticed by the Dubrovnik Republic, which regulates the farming and sales with strict legal acts.

At the end of the 19th century, Mali Ston oysters were awarded various diplomas and were exported to European cities such as Vienna, Prague and even Paris. Shellfish experts and nutritionists who tasted Mali Ston oysters give them an advantage not only in relation to the other oysters, but also in relation to the same species from other locations. They only have words of praise for it and evaluation – the tastiest in the world. This is confirmed by a Grand Prix and Gold Medal for quality awarded at the General Trades International Exhibition in London in 1936.
