    Warm water oysters are a hard no for me, Dawg.

    Warm water oysters are a hard no for me too.

    Wellfleet oysters are MikeR approved.

    I eat oysters about once a month. Never ever warm water oysters. Always New England (preferably Maine) or Canadian oysters, and Washington or Canadian oysters on the West Coast.

    Kevin, I follow the same path. When on St Barths, I enjoy (when available) oysters at L’Isola or L’Esprit. A treat.

    I’m surprised that they’re finding Vibrio that far north, in the Damariscotta River and in Bouctouche Bay.

    Representatives for Clyde’s Restaurant Group (CRG) say that samples from four varieties of oysters tested positive for vibrio—a bacteria that causes vomiting and diarrhea, and in rare instances can be fatal—after being sent to a partner lab in Boulder, Colorado. The tainted oysters were Pemaquid (Maine), Dixon Point (Canada), Belle De Jour (Canada), and Wellfleet (Massachusetts). The restaurant group has kept baked, grilled, and fried oysters on their menus, as cooking kills the bacteria.
