|SEA FERN or AIR FERN has been known by many alternative names, such as NEPTUNUS, CYPRESS MOSS, SEE MOSS and AQUA FERN.|
Our product is, in fact, a natural coral (sertularia argenta) and is harvested from the North Sea by our trawlers during some nine months of the year when the quality is at its best. It is then preserved, coloured and made into bunches or sprays. Although it is plant like to the eye, with its delicate fronds, it is actualy more closely related to the animal kingdom.

|SEA FERN is widely used by florists and also for aquarium decoration. Generally, we colour our fern green for the floral industry but for aquarium use we dye the arrangements several different colours and weight them so that they stay on the bottom of the tank. Our product is virtually everlasting.|
We can supply our AQUARIUM FERN on display cards ready for retail outlets.
|Fruits of the Sea has two vessels,one harvesting Sea Fern, the other harvesting Cockles and other shellfish.|
We have been processing Air Fern for some three generations, since 1950. We are based in Essex, England.
