- Ston shellfish
The Mali Ston Bay is known for its production of two types of shells: oysters and mussels. The locals have engaged in this activity ever since the ancient times. Records of harvesting shellfish date from the 16th century and the cultivation from the 17th century. The cultivation of oysters is solely based on the collection of shells, and the cultivation of mussels on floating and fixed parks. Oysters are best for consumption in March around the holiday of St. Joseph when there is a culinary event called The Feast of oysters. They are best to consume freshly opened with lemon juice.
