Being in the restaurant business (Florida) it's interesting to learn new and exciting things about the food business that helps everyone, this forum is a great example. Several days ago I was talking with a purveyor, who is famous for being able to obtain exotic food from all over the world, about an event we had up coming where the host had asked for some sort of oyster/shrimp station. My friend/purveyor of some eight years sent me a one and one-half page list of oysters from literally all over the world that varied in price from $1 each to $3 each delivered to my door. After looking over the list for a day or so I went back to my friend for more advice. I asked him his opinion of an oyster that has a far better (different) taste profile to enjoy a larger dollar expenditure than the Appalachicola product that we all enjoy. After several minutes of silence, he stated the The Appalachicola Oyster is his biggest shipper period, in the exotic oyster business, and he is four states north of us!
