The world may be your oyster, but it’s not mine

June 8, 2021

I was happy to see the story this week that Hog Island Oyster Co. has won the right to continue serving up its in-demand product not only for the foreseeable future, but also for as long as the slimy inhabitants within that hard shell are considered a delightful taste treat. And the fact that they’ve been just that for centuries bodes well. It all happened because under a new $1.1 million conservation deal, aquaculture is included for the first time. Joy to any bivalve’s ears, assuming they had them.
