While business has gradually been improving, P&J Oyster Company in New Orleans, the oldest shucking operation in the United States, is still at only 35 percent of its normal production – and the company has yet to resume shucking its own oysters.

This Thanksgiving, when you gather ’round the dining room table to count your blessings, don’t forget to add Louisiana oysters to the list. Yes, the holiday favorite is available, though pricier and a little harder to come by.
