Founder of Othniel Oysters, Gary fished commercially for 10 years until fish quotas and a growing family forced him to the conclusion that the only way forward was to give up fishing and start farming. He has been growing shellfish since 1987, starting with 5 acres and building up to the present holding of 103 acres.
Lynne is a director of the Company and is in charge of all the admin. If you're looking for Gary, you'll no doubt be talking to Lynne!
Rob is in charge of the harvesting barge and has been our skipper since 2010. He has been at sea all his working life and has extensive experience operating commercial vessels.
Pete started work with us in 2012 as engineer and relief skipper. We kidnapped him from the RNLI and now he is our Mr Fixit.
Lee has been with the company since 2007. He gets to do all the good jobs... guess what Lee, the boat needs painting again! He looks after the oyster seed and is also responsible for bagging up all our consignments.
