NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- P&J Oyster Company, a 134-year old operation in the heart of New Orleans' French Quarter, has stopped shucking.
The company processes and distributes oysters. A big part of its business was shucking oysters out of their shells, but that has been killed off by the BP oil spill. Fewer oysters are being farmed in the oil-stained waters of the Gulf of Mexico. So P&J Oyster has no oysters to shuck.

I am a big fan of raw oysters and I can say from experience that Louisiana oysters are the best, by far. Maybe the warm and plentiful brackish waters add to their taste?
I just hope that the crawfish (or crawdads as we call em in SC) aren't decimated as well. They're actually my favorite. Although freshwater, I think it's very likely that the freshwater swamps and marshes will suffer too. But, maybe not...
