I try not to bye oysters from Southern waters, just from the cold waters in the north. Thats just my preference. Not that there is anything wrong with southern oysters.

The very best oysters I have ever eaten were from Louisiana and Texas waters.
At least thats what I was told. Since I did not harvest them how would i know anyway.
I noticed the clams and mussels at Costco have a little tag attached to the mesh bag telling you harvest date and where they were harvested.
I was shocked to see Florida Keys as the origination of the clams while the mussels were from Canada. Both farm raised.

In the US, according to USDA rules, all shellfish such as clams, mussels, etc. have to have that tag. If someone becomes sick from them, they can track back to where they are from. Were they harvested in contaminated waters. or did it happen in the handling of them, etc.

A year or so ago, we had a very active clam bed out near the airport that was so badly contaminated with an accidental spill of jet fuel, that the bed will never recover.
