"Oysters are sometimes referred to as "the milk of the sea" because of their high nutritional value. Young oysters come from eggs, attach themselves to hard places in the ocean, and then grow. They can change gender, allowing them to reproduce regardless of their neighbors' genders."

The word oyster is used as a common name for a number of different families of saltwater clams, bivalve mollusks that live in marine or brackish habitats. In some species the valves are highly calcified, and many are somewhat irregular in shape. Some kinds of oysters are commonly consumed, cooked or raw, by humans as a delicacy. Some kinds of pearl oysters are harvested for the pearl produced within the mantle.
