Shell On Earth's whelks are caught locally using traditional pots, a low impact method of fishing which means minimal damage to the sea floor and marine habitats. The company are passionately committed to sustainability and always looking for new ways to support the fishermen and fishing authorities they work with.

Once cooked, the meat and shells are separated. The shells are taken to a dedicated area of the factory where they are crushed and cleaned a further three times. They’re then taken to our drying room to remove any moisture. Finally, each bag is individually packaged and hand-tied.

The meat is prepared and shipped to South Korea where its enjoyed in a delicious spicy salad 'golbaengi-muchim'. The crushed shells are used in plant pots, terrariums, gardens and landscaping. Any organic discards are converted into green energy, meaning Shell On Earth use 100% of this natural resource.
