Mersea Island

Mersea is an island situated on the Essex coast within the Colne and Blackwater Estuaries, linked to the mainland by a causeway. It has been inhabited since pre-roman times with a wealth of finds to support this. Mersea is popular as a tourist destination and was used as such during Roman occupation for those visiting Colchester. But its most significant economy is the fishing industry, mainly of Oysters. Renowned and highly regarded worldwide, they are unrivalled for their flavour and plumpness owing to the nutrients from the location but also from the way they are managed by being moved between creeks.
