Cape May Salt Oyster
The Cape May Salt Oyster or "Cape May Salts", as they are commonly known, are valued for their extra briny flavor. Overfishing, pollution, increased water temperatures and parasitic diseases are responsible for the loss of many oyster species and populations in the Delaware Bay. The Cape May Salt Oyster population was particularly affected and has only recently begun to recover. Today the bay is cleaner, partly due to environmental programs and partly due to the decline of heavy industry in Philadelphia. These reasons encourage optimism that local oysters can once again flourish in their habitat.
