Eat your oysters all year 'round

In the New York Times, Anahad O'Connor debunks the "only eat oysters in months with an 'r'" myth. Since I was posed the same question over the weekend, I thought I'd share my answer in a superiorly written form. Basically the answer is that contemporary commercial shell-fisheries protect our favorite bivalves from nasty tasting algae and keep them from spawning (which also makes them nasty-tasting and flabby) So, slurp away, all summer!
