Oysters are shellfish, or "mollusks," found in both freshwater and saltwater. They often produce pearls, making Oyster Day a real gem.
Oysters sift food from the water around them. In doing so, they sometimes pick up a piece of sand or grit. If that piece of sand or grit gets lodged in the oyster's system, the oyster reacts to the irritant by slowly secreting a substance called "nacre" around the sand. Ultimately, it develops into a pearl.
Oysters are a delicacy enjoyed by many. Some love oysters, while others find oysters to be an acquired taste.
