There is nothing like a fresh Apalachicola Oysters in this world.

The drought in the southeast could have severe effects on Apalachiacola Oysters.

    The situation is pretty bad. The river flow was kept steady because of the water supply from the Lake Lanier. But what the Oystermen and biologists don’t understand is that in less than 90 days there will be NO MORE WATER to release from the Lake at the current release level.

    If it doesn’t rain soon in North Georgia, the loss of the Apalachicola oysters and the endangered mussels is inevitable.

      I am still hoping that the storm heading to Fla veers left rather than the expected right. The GA..Al..TN area could really use the 3 to 6 inches of rain that is looking like it will be wasted off the Florida coast.

        How is the drought going? I see the southeast got snow last night and rain earlier this month.

          GA is still about 40% below average rainfall for the year, NC is 50% below

          The rain and snow does help, but it is still a VERY BAD situation.

            CajunKing,as you know living in Dothan,AL,I'm about 120 miles from Apalachicola and 80 miles from the Gulf of Mexico...The drought hasn't affected the oysters so far as we can tell...Hunt's Oyster Bar and Seafood Restaurant can attest to that...They're packed with oyster lovers every night and day except Sunday !

                  How come? You can get live oysters in Ohio.

                        You're so right Ann...Oysters must be ABSOLUTELY fresh ! My hubby and I have been oyster fiends all our lives ... So were our families on both sides for generations...But,we have always been so blessed because we had such close and read access to incredibly fresh ones...I can't wait to eat some oysters with you in Mobile !

                            All the supermarkets around here have them, and so, too do the fish mongers -- not to mention tons of restaurants.
