Is Oyster Favorite Seafood in Louisiana?

A Louisiana oyster dish

Sea foods, fisheries, and shellfish are important products of my state, Louisiana. The products contributed US$ 1.8 billion in the state economics.

In term of production, Louisiana is second largest after Alaska. Louisiana catches 1.3 billion pounds of marine creatures, while Alaska produced 5.3 billion pounds of seafood.

Oyster is one of my favorite seafood. Louisiana oyster has different taste compared to other oysters.

Louisiana oyster is quite like meat texture with “fresh earth” (earthy) flavor. Just to remind you that Louisiana oysters are harvested from Gulf of Mexico.

Other oysters which live in the ocean let’s say Pacific and Atlantic are different in tastes than Louisiana oyster. The tastes could be saltier and sweeter.


Oysters are harvested from public sea in Louisiana

Prices of Louisiana oyster dishes are range from US$ 9.00 to US$ 12 per six oysters, depend on kinds of restaurants.

I think price for raw oysters is quite cheap, US$ 30 for a 100 pound. It means that US$ 0.3 for 1 pound, contains 2 to 3 oysters per pound.

I often eat oysters in US$ 12 restaurants where I can eat everything available menus: fish, oyster, chicken, noodle, pizza, fruits, cake, ice cream and etcetera.

A fishing boat to harvest oysters

Public may harvest oysters from Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana, in certain seasons. Oyster could be found in the areas such as:
- Shallow tidal zones
- Sub tidal zones.
- Estuaries
- Brackish water

Open season started in September and closed in April. Louisiana authority in this case “Wildlife and Fisheries Commission” may decide to close or open the areas based on biological data.


Finally, have you taste an oyster? What do you think about the taste: sweeter, salty or earthy?

  5. I love oysters, Evi. It is one of the things I would miss about life. I have not eaten the oysters of Louisiana or those of the Gulf of Mexico, but the oysters of Argentina and Chile may not have anything to envy them.

    Big hug.

  7. Mahalnya ya kaaak .. , US30 untuk 100 pound tiram , ckckck ...

    Tapi sesekali ngga apa-apa juga mengkonsumsi tiram setinggi itu harganya, karena kandungan gixinya memang bagus untuk kesehatan.

  9. These oysters reminds me of a bad experience we had with a Japanese buffet dinner. We took some oysters and we ended up with diarrhea.

  11. This is really interesting -- I had no idea! I haven't had an oyster for literally decades and I wasn't fond then. But maybe I should try again! I do love most other seafood and the saltiness would be a plus! Thanks, also for stopping by my blog! I need to follow you -- looks like you have some interesting things here!

  23. I am not a big fan of seafood but i have eaten these on a half shell....oh with hot sauce on it. They were good but not something I would require often. Course I don't live where you have these at hand.
