Admired for its beauty.

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, turtles 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.
