September was the beginning of Native Oyster season, which lasts until April 2021. Native oysters are flatter and more consistently shaped than a rock oyster. The meat in these oysters is delicate, with a succulent texture and a crisp taste, making them a favourite among seafood lovers. The rock oyster is a bit bigger and is available all year round.
