Not every lorer of t i.e oyster knows that
(he size and plumpm - w liieh are so high
ly pri'.ed in turn ri-.it. Aiueriian bivalve.
nd are so attractive in spe-cinieiis on the
half shell or in : stew as to lead the aver
age man to pay an extra price for extra
size, are not entirely natural. Yet ir, is
the usual practice for dealers, instead of
selling the oysters in the condition in
which thev are taken from the salt water
leds, to first place them for a time forty-
eight hours, more or less in fresh or
brackish water in order, as they say, to
fatten'1 them, the oier.-ilion lieing called
'floatiD,:'' or "l.iyinc out." Bv this proc
ess the body of the oyster acquires such a
plumpness and rotundity, and its bulk and
weight are so increased as to increase its
selling value materially.
The belief is common unions oystermen
that this "fattening" is due to an actual
(rain of flesh and fat, and that the nutri
tive value of the luollusk is increased by
the process. Such, however, is very far
from lieing the truth. If a biadder tie
filled with salt water and then put into
fresh water the saltwater will gradually
work its way out through the pores of the
bladder, anil at t he same time the fresher
water w ill enter t he bladder.
Furthermore, t he fresh water will .-o in
much more rapidly than the sail water
poos out, owing to the fact that the latter
is more dense. The result will lie that the
amount of water in the bladder will lie in
creased, and the bladder will swell bv tak
ing up more water than it luses, while at
the same time it loses a portion of the salt.
The same principle exact Iy applies to the.
Roughly speak ins. tha Imdy of the oyster
may be regarded its a collet-tinned mem
braneous sites. These sacs are impreg
nated with the fe.tlt cf the sei waier iu
which the nnimal lives. .So ioinr as the
bivalve remains iu the salt water the solu
tion of salt within it. is in equilibrium with
t he water outside. I'ut when k is placed
in fresh or brackish water the salt passes
out of t ne IhkIv ami a larger amount of
fresh water enters, producing the disten
sion called "faltenii.."
Oysternirn find thai, the oy.,tt rs "fatten"
much more quickly in fresh than in
brackish water, quite naturally. Warmth.
too, is so favorable to the process that it is
sometimes found profit-able slightly to
heat the water in which the oysters are
floated. Altlioueh ojsters are generally
floated in t he shell, the same effect is very
commonly obtained by addin fresh water
to the oysters after they have been
"shucked." Oysters lose much of their
salty flavor in floating, of course, and it it
chiefly on that account that the specimens
one eat are apt to he less salt than would
be agreeable to the palate. If the "fat
tened" oysters are left too long on the float
they become l-an asain.
Experienced dealers sny that the. time
for allowing salt oysters to "lie out" is
seldom over two or t hree days, at the end
of which time the maximum plumpness is
obtained. At Franklin City, Md., oysters
are "fattened" tin a considerable scale, and
one planter there warms fresh water for
the purpose to GO degs. Fahrenheit in win
ter by steam pipes running beneath the
wooden inclosure which surrounds the
Good fat oysters generally yield five
quarts of solid meat to the bushel, but
lifter floating two tides or more in a tide
river they will measure six quarts per
bushel. Finally tney are taketi from the
shells, if they "are to lie shipped in that
way, and when the liquor is ail strained
off they are washed in cold fresh water
and packed for market. In warm weather
they are put into the water with ice.
