    Exactly the way some of the whites are going to be prepared this evening. 7pm, tie is optional.

      State conservation officials say there aren't enough wild oysters in Alabama waters to justify a season.

        I wonder how Hurricane Michael affected the Apalachicola oysters?

          Best oysters in the world, excluding none. I can remember, as a child, traveling to Dothan to visit family and the older men would drive down to get a big wash tub full, come back, shell, eat and drink beer-a-sodas. Good times.

            Not much info or data in this article, but there is this reference:

            When Hurricane Michael made landfall at Mexico Beach, Florida, on Oct. 10, 2018, it dealt a devastating blow to this nascent industry. Preliminary reports indicate significant damage and heavy crop losses.

            ....

            Beyond direct impacts on oyster farms, Hurricane Michael damaged state laboratories that conduct water quality testing required to re-open waters to harvesting. Testing delays could lead to prolonged closures and even affect areas not hit by the storm. Michael also disrupted red tide sampling in several Panhandle counties. In Gulf and Escambia counties, red tide concentrations actually
            increased in late October.

            Farmers will be looking for more oyster seed – the small oysters that they need to restock their bags and baskets. This could drive up demand and strain the industry’s capacity. Unlike crop farmers on land, oyster farmers cannot buy subsidized insurance to help them with losses of oysters and gear, so those who suffered heavy damage will be challenged to rebuild their operations.

            Oysters are big business along the Gulf Coast, but raising them off-bottom – which yields a premium product – is just starting there. Hurricane Michael showed it won't be easy.

              Tough story to read.
              APALACHICOLAT.J. Ward’s phone rang. Service had improved in the days since Hurricane Michael.

                They kind of fucked themselves after the BP oil spill. The government loosened restrictions and let the fishermen harvest as many oysters as they wanted to. This was due to the fear that the oil would make it to Apalachicola and ruin the season. The fishermen over harvested and the oysters have not been able to make a comeback.

                Im no expert, this is just what I was told by a local down there.

                    Can you fly us a fresh sack of oysters on your next exotic trip?

                              I fried up 1/2 quart last weekend to go with spicy boiled shrimp corn and taters during last week's asskicking of the Whu. As with the trout, just a little corn meal and a little vegetable oil frying makes them perfect

                                But I do luv them freshly shucked on a cracker with cocktail sauce, horseradish, a splash of lemon and a shot of Tabasco.

                                and, I'm a threat to go fancy on the grill with Rockerfeller or just some mozzarella cheese, garlic & wine.

                                Pre appendectomy, I would just slurp them from the shell and let the alcohol dilute any pollutants.
