@wesley91: I tend to be full of useless information most of the time but I have some interesting facts about oysters. Almost 2 billion pounds of oysters are consumed every year.
Also, there are male and female oysters. Interestingly enough, oysters have gonads that generate sperm, as well as eggs. Oysters have the ability to change their sex which they do about once a year. Interestingly, the gonads are considered the best tasting part of the oyster.
The color of oyster meat depends primarily on what the oyster eats. Usually, the oyster meat is light gray, off white, or light beige.
