Oysters in France

daves2009 | Jul 29, 2009 06:13 AM

hi all,
whenever i go to Paris I am mesmerized by the variety of oysters (both size and provenance) and wondered if anybody could recommend a guide (in English) that might clarify things (where they're from, what differentiates them in taste, etc).

Also, in Ireland we often say that one should not eat shellfish in months whose names do not contain an R (ie the summer months); are there any concerns regarding the quality of seafood in France during these months or are they such a staple of the cuisine that quality is always high?
