Whether you love them raw, fried or on the half shell, oysters are a delicious way to celebrate National Oyster Day! Oysters can provide high levels of heart and brain boosting Omega-3 fatty acids, and enough zinc to keep you going all night. Here are a few fun facts to celebrate our appreciation of oysters.

2. Oysters breathe similarly to fish. They have two gills and a mantle. The mantle is lined with many small, thin walled blood vessels which extract oxygen from the water.
