Oyster farming is becoming increasingly popular in South Australia generating over 59 million dollars annually in sales revenue in NSW, 78 million dollars in South Australia and 43 million dollars in Tasmania recent years. With the increase in oyster farming, it means that there is more equipment readily available. These types of equipment are there to help farmers to successfully capture and harvest oysters. Oyster farming has come a long way with different techniques and equipment available to help with the farming. The different oyster farming equipment available is suited to a range of different methods and techniques. At Hexcyl, being oyster farmers ourselves we know the need for quality equipment. Which is why we designed the toughest and most productive oyster baskets available.

What is the Hexcyl system?

The Hexcyl system provides oyster farmers and shellfish farmers a wide range of aquaculture products designed for a range of techniques including longline oyster farming and other tidal and the innovative and highly efficient FlipFarm surface floating systems.

We know how rough the water can get and how important it is to have a sturdy and tough basket for your farming. That is why we designed our baskets the way we did. To give you the most productive and successful result.

The Hexcyl basket

The Hexcyl baskets are designed for a wide range of grow out options and orientations. They can be used in low, moderate and high energy environments.

We used not only our own industry experience but also the feedback of other oyster farmers when creating our baskets and accessories. This was to ensure that we were able to provide the best quality products to the market.

The features

Because every oyster farming situation is different, we cater for a range of different size businesses.

Our oyster baskets come with a range of features that make them the most suited for many situations.

They are available in 5 different sizes to suit growth when needed and are suitable for oysters, scallops, sea urchins and other small shellfish.

Our Hexcyl Pro baskets are 66% bigger than the standard 15L baskets which means you are able to fit more per basket. This benefits your business as a greater stock density means lower operating costs for you. The baskets are able to hold up to 10kg and have a larger flat ‘footprint’ which results in a 40% increase in productivity.

Our system is a quick and easy to assemble system, meaning you are not spending too much time setting up the baskets. They are ready in no time. And when it comes to transporting them, the suspension clips fold down for easy transportation.
