It is a remote site, free of any sources of pollution, ideally suited for the sustainable culture of bivalve mollusks due to its excellent water quality, temperature, tidal range and water currents. "Sol Azul possesses the technology that allows year round production of the finest export-quality oysters, selectively bred from choice cultured stock, homogeneous in size, shape and taste, as well as resistant to post-harvest handling and transportation.
