A small marine creature that lives in a shell rooted to the sea floor.

Oysters are a common source of food for fortresses located near an ocean. They are also one of the few types of creatures, along with mussels, pond turtles, nautiluses, and cave lobsters, that are sources of shells. They can't be butchered, but are cleaned at a fishery, which generates a shell and prepared oyster. Oysters can also be cooked raw.

Oysters are hateable vermin and will give unhappy thoughts to dwarves who absolutely detest oysters when they encounter them.

Some dwarves like oysters for their beauty.

Admired for its beauty.
