What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The Fal Fishery has possibly the last indigenous native oyster stocks left in the British Isles, while other fisheries can import natives the Fal Oyster Fishery Bylaws prohibits importing or relaying. A Principle Scientific Officer wrote "I fear we may be at a density (1 per 20 square metres) of O. edulis (native oyster) that would make successful reproduction incredibly difficult". Our aim is to save the natives from exportation, to store them at an aquaculture site in the epicentre of the fishery, to study the juveniles growth and mature reproduction timings, to sell only the medium grade when they reach the Fal Oyster PDO standard, all the while we are doing this they are repopulating the natural fishery with a genetically resilient species. Working with University of Exeter (Penryn Campus), Bangor University and National Lobster Hatchery (Padstow) as well as the licenced Fal Oyster Gatherers and Fal Oyster Ltd.
