Oysters

Oysters — the symbol of the aristocratic gourmet cuisine attracts gourmets in South Goa like a magnet. Here the aquatic inhabitants live in sweet and salty waters and can be found in estuaries, insbesopndere in the swamps and creeks in shallow offshore areas with a rocky bottom. Most saturated oyster colonies are located near the mouth of the River Sal, where there are also the beaches of Cavelossim, Mobor, and Betula.

The collection of oysters by the locals is a colorful spectacle and attracts curious stares from tourists and travel agencies organize trips to watch the fish. The fishermen have to go into the water and at the bottom you will find the oysters with your toes. Small oysters, which nest in the coastal rocks must be removed with a special knife. The collection of women and children is growing in the villages. Curiously, oyster shells are in Goa traditionally made ​​white and pasted on the walls of houses and windows.

In South Goa and the neighboring state of Kerala, there are farms for the cultivation of oysters, which are not worse than the natural in quality and taste, and sometimes even better.

In some restaurants, there are great deals, and even fried oysters, served with spices or on plates made ​​of banana leaves.
