New: Book Report: The Big Oyster

It's kind of a history of the oyster. It's kind of a history of shellfishing in New York City harbor. Once there were oysters. Then they were overfished. Then they were cultivated. Then water pollution came along, turning the oysters into disease vectors. It was OK. The book, I mean. The book was OK. The disease vectors were less than OK.
