Bluff oysters are dredged by Bluff’s oyster fleet from Foveaux Strait in March to early August (autumn and winter). The start of the oyster season is a big deal and oysters are harvested and distributed throughout the country very speedily. At the end of May, Bluff hosts the Bluff Oyster and Food Festival with the 2019 festival scheduled for 25 May.
