NATIONAL OYSTER DAY

Did you know there are over 100 different species of oysters? They’re typically named after the body of water in which they’re grown because they take on the characteristics of the water they live in.

Here are some other interesting oyster facts:

  • The largest oyster-producing body of water in the world is located in Chesapeake Bay on the east coast of the U.S.
  • Almost two billion pounds of oysters are eaten each year.
  • In the U.S., east coast oysters tend to be smaller, milder and saltier. West coast oysters are creamy and sweet.
  • Only one out of every 10,000 oysters will produce a pearl.
