Population: 17379

Hayling Island is an island off the south coast of England, in the county of Hampshire. Oysters have been fished on the Hayling oyster beds, at the northwest corner of the island, as long ago as Roman times, documented in town records since 1615. The oysters were actively farmed as early as 1819 until the 1970s. Oysters became a delicacy that was exported throughout the country under the classification of “Emsworth Oysters”. Large complexes consisting of several pens separated by a series of bund walls and sluice gates were built to contain the oysters at varying stages of growth. Although large sections of the walls have since collapsed into the harbour, much of shape and scale of the beds can still be seen today.[1]
