The Oyster Hoister

We have designed and developed the Oyster Hoister to hang under the Ardfern Yacht Centre marina pontoons.  Each suspended Oyster Hoister houses up to 100 juvenile native oysters and because a mature oyster filters up to 200 litres a day, they clean the marina water as well as releasing spat.


By sponsoring an Oyster Hoister you become an active stakeholder in our community project helping to further our aims. Each Hoister carries the name of the sponsor, and soon, we will have an information board at the Yacht Centre so that sponsors can learn about the progress of the project. An Oyster Hoister costs £130 in the first year and an annual service charge of £60 thereafter. Your sponsorship pays for ongoing monitoring and maintenance of the equipment. So, if you don’t have a holding tank, and would like to help clean up the Loch and improve biodiversity, PLEASE, get in touch.

Contact us at or telephone Danny Renton on 07780871996 for more information.
