Oysters used to be shipped in sawdust to Chicago, via the Erie Canal, from the East Coast. I've seen newspaper ads from the turn of the century touting that such oysters would keep for weeks. Maybe that's true. It seems likely, however, that every second out of the water is a second's worth of lost oyster flavor.
