The Solar Tide – an innovative, unique and patented process

Florent Tarbouriech, a passionate, demanding and ambitious oyster farmer, was not content with the beautiful Bouzigues oysters he produced. To convince star chefs who are fond of Atlantic oysters, he thought that by recreating the effect of the tide on the Thau lagoon, he could produce high-end oysters...
So he tried to take the oyster strings out of the water daily. It was more than satisfying.
In 2008 he built his first structure allowing the oysters to be removed from the water mechanically at a sustained and controlled pace.
Today, 55 oyster farms are equipped with solar panels and/or wind turbines. Controlled remotely, the motors activate the poles which wind or unwind the oyster ropes. It is not the water that recedes but the oysters that rise and emerge out of the water. We are not affected by the tide but control it (according to different parameters: weather, age of the oysters, etc.)

A sustainable farming method

Always aware that the environment around us is precious and fragile, sustainable development is imperative for us. As we grow, we have been keen to include all of the activities of "the House Tarbouriech” in a standardized approach.
We are proud to present the methods and results to you through the latest Sustainable Development report.
