oyster harvesting

I happened to come across these oysters down at the pier being bagged and putted on pallets.  I imagine they are going to market.  There are red bags, green and brown bags.  I have no idea what the colours mean if they mean anything.  I tried oysters many years ago and never liked them.

  1. Never liked them either. But clearly other folks do & that's why these are all ready to go!

  2. I have a friend who often tells me a few stories about a trip he made to Ireland many years ago. After a visit to the docks they talked to their landlord and were served a great oyster meal the following evening. They also drank a lot of whiskey.

  3. Someone must like 'em. And pay handsomely for them. But not me.

  4. Likewise Bill, oysters do absolutely nothing for me - they are the only shell fish which I do not enjoy and I have tried them several times.

  5. Well that's curious Bill, wonder if it's anything to do with size? Not fond of the slippery little suckers myself :)

  9. I have an aversion to sea food, so I'd avoid these.

  10. At risk of nauseating everyone else, impeccably fresh oysters are delicious...raw. Most of the time they aren't nearly fresh enough. Otherwise they are, justifiably, a big "e-e-e-w-w-w-w, no thanks."

  11. I am not a fan of oysters, either. Read the comments above hoping to be informed about the color choices, but with no luck. Do you think each oysterman uses a different color to mark his?
