Oysters are good for the Environment
Unlike most food production operations, growing oysters can have a positive effect on the environment. They also have low visual impact on coastal scenery, the photo above shows one of the biggest oyster farms in the UK, only visible at low tide.
Oysters are a great source of protein and are a healthier choice than most meats due to their low fat content. They are also rich in vitamins (vitamin D, vitamin B12) and minerals (iron, copper, manganese, selenium and zinc) which are known for their contribution to healthy hearts, lowering blood pressure and improving brain function.
