The Sylt Royal Oyster is a breed that is reared in aquaculture in the Blidselbucht in the Lister Wadden Sea within three years. The Sylter Royal is the only oyster, which is produced in Germany.

The young Pacific rock oysters are packed in wide-meshed bags and then placed in the Wadden Sea on steel tables, where the oysters grow for three years. In winter ice conditions in the Wadden Sea oysters are stored in sea water basin.
