If any of you work or live over on the west side, Addis seafood has sacks and half sacks of oysters. I had some last week and they were great

Yeah the oyster was techically alive for two weeks, simmering in his own personal sewer of the crap they consume from the bottom of the sea(filter clean through gills) for that long. Mom dealt with too many examples of oyster diseases, but what you are talking about is off the scale of measuring, as you are talking a bi-valve petri dish.


I'm sure the date the OP is talking about is the harvest date and not the delivery date. Two week old (from harvest date) oysters should not be bad. Obviously you want to eat them earlier than that if possible. I would venture to say that most restaurants probably sell 7-10 day old oysters from harvest date majority of the time. It usually takes a day or two for the boat to get in after harvesting them, then another day or two for the oyster processor to process/sack/grade/wash them, then it is usually delivered to an seafood wholesaler who then sells it to restaurants. If these oysters tasted bad, it probably had something to do with temperature abuse I would guess. Oysters should be stored at 45 degrees or lower and preferablly around 40 degrees.

Googled a few sites and seems store perfectly 1 week from the time of harvest is the longest they sould be kept.Also taste declines by the day. However my grandparents sold Oysters and restaurants would not buy them unless they were harvested the same day.

This is not the case in the business. I worked for a seafood wholesaler as HACCP manager/buyer for 7 years and after they shut it down I worked with restaurant depot (wholesale food company similar to sams that sells to restaurants & catering companies) as seafood manager. This was not the case there either. There policy was 7 days from received date (which was usually a few days after harvest date). On the 7th day they had to reduce prices up to 50% to sell out and if they didn't sell out they had to throw them in the garbage. I will tell you that they have some of the strictest policies I have ever seen in the business also.

Not sure where your grandparents sold oysters but this is not the case here or with restaurants here. Sure they want them as fresh as possible but the same day is almost impossible to get them to restaurants.

Wilson's is worth the drive for me. But having them delivered would be off the charts.
