Our 'preservatives' are actually good for your animals

Samstersam - I know there was a picture of something posted a while back. It didnít come from our company so I can't verify quite what it was. Have you even eaten an oyster in the summer? You've probably noticed that they go from being firm and sweet in the winter to flacid and creamy in the summer. That's because they are getting ready to spawn so they convert much of their muscle tissue into reproductive tissue.

To produce Oyster Feast we use "spawny" oysters that are harvested at the end of summer and have ripe gonadal tissue and ovarian tissue - fully of eggs. The only way there could be no eggs in Oyster Feast would be if we filtered them out. And since we don't have any other products that use oyster eggs, that would be just plain silly

The only way to really know which of the various oyster egg products are going to work best in your system is to try them all, and stick with the product that works the best!

Putting an oyster in the blender and grinding it up will produce food for many of the larger mouth animals in your system, but it won't produce particles in the 1-100 micron range that many corals need. Oyster muscle tissue is long and stringy, even ground up. If you can purchase "spawny" oysters it should work, but stores typically don't sell those because nobody wants to eat them.
I know this is an old thread, but I did have to open my BIG mouth.
You arenít supposed to eat oysters in months without an ďRĒ in it, RemembeR?
So no one should know what oysters harvested in summer taste like. I always thought it was because pollution and other nastiness were more prevalent in summer, but your statement that the entire oyster changes physically during the summer makes more sense.
