Seafood fact: The first oyster was eaten by captain Arnold Smith in1805. Sailing the Mediterranean Ocean his ship collided with a rock and the ocean current washed him onto a deserted island. After days of hunger he attempted to catch a penguin. He chased it to the other end of the island until he saw the penguin stop to eat this strange shellfish. So he tried it himself and loved it.
