West Whelks is a world renowned seafood retail and wholesale supplier based in Kent UK, offering some of the very finest oysters, fresh fish and crustacea.
West Whelks Shellfish can trace its origins back to the 1800s; indeed, it is one of the oldest shellfish companies in Europe and has a long, rich history of catching the famous "Whitstable Native Oyster".
But Whitstable oysters go even further back, almost two thousand years, to when the Romans discovered them and, regarding them as a delicacy, shipped them back live to Rome. More recently, we have established a foot hold in the emerging Asian markets as well as retained our European and UK markets.
Many years ago oysters were heavily dredged from Whitstable and you could see a large fleet of oyster smacks moored off the beach waiting to dredge the oyster beds, but from the turn of the century a number of factors conspired against the oyster industry – cold winters, the two World Wars, the great flood of 1953 and, not least, the introduction of battered seafood.
