National Fisherman

About a month ago, I got one of those cold calls at the office that make you glad to answer the phone.

It was from Leo Lovel — owner of Spring Creek Restaurant in Wakulla County and author of the marvelous "Spring Creek Chronicles" — inviting me down to eat some oysters. Not just any oysters, mind you, his oysters, ones grown in cages from tiny seeds right there in Alligator Harbor by him and his sons, Ben and Clay.

"They are snow white on the inside and so salty, they will burn your lips," Leo told me.

Then he hit me with this: "This could be the rebirth of the seafood industry in North Florida."

If you read my Sunday story about the Lovels' oyster farming effort, you'll read those quotes again. The first one is just too good to not repeat. The second one, it turns out talking to aquaculture folks, may just be true.
