6. Eating oysters is good for the environment
The Pacific Oyster, which is found everywhere in Danish inland waters, is considered an invasive species. It changes the natural marine environment and threatens the unique European oyster species, especially in the Limfjord. Along the North Sea, too, Pacific Oysters are displacing the mussels that many birds in the Wadden Sea rely on for food. So pack your wellies and do the environment a favour by scooping up these delicious goodies and eating them! Good to know: the Pacific Oyster can be recognized by its elongated shape and thick shell, while the European one is rounder and fleshier.
