“Everyone thought the oysters were absolutely delicious
and we would have no problem recommending you.” Suns S


Most oysters available these days are farmed. Unlike
some types of aquaculture, oyster farming requires
pristinely clean waters and a deep understanding of
tides, water temperature, and other factors that affect
the oyster bed’s health, meaning there is almost no
way to farm oysters irresponsibly.

Oysters are filter feeders. They don’t require the
manufacture of food or the harvest of other sea
creatures to feed them, eliminating the possibility of
contaminated feed that exists in some aquaculture
operations. Also, unlike salmon and other carnivorous
fish farming operations, raising oysters does not result
in a wasteful net loss of protein.

Because oysters are filter feeders, they actually clean the water,
encouraging more light and the resultant growth of ocean greenery
and increase in oxygen levels. Not only do oysters clean the water,
but the oyster farmers must act as protectors of the environment
in which they farm, or they would be out of business.

Aphrodisiac properties
The word "aphrodisiac" was born when Aphrodite, the Greek goddess
of love, sprang forth from the sea on an oyster shell and promptly gave
birth to Eros. Because Aphrodite was said to be born from the sea,
many types of seafood have reputations as an aphrodisiac. This is
particularly the case with oysters which are apportioned to their high
mineral content, specifically zinc. It was rumoured that Casanova ate
over 50 oysters a day to boost his libido. The concept of stand alone
oyster shuckers first arose at sex parties in Amsterdam, Holland.
