Oysters “Functionally Extinct”

Hold on to your hats, seafood lovers, scientists have declared oysters “functionally extinct”!

According to The Daily Mail:

"Oyster reefs around the world are disappearing so fast that more than 85 per cent have been lost to disease and over-harvesting, according to a study.

The mollusk is disappearing from its natural habitat and is now ‘functionally extinct’ in many places due to over-exploitation, scientists believe.”

Raw bars around the world can be heard weeping.
