Louisiana oystermen say oysters are very hard to come by this winter and their $300-million industry is hurting. Louisiana Oyster Task Force Chairman John Tesvich says, in his 35 years in the oyster business, he's never seen it this bad. "We've had ups and downs in oysters, and the natural cycle go through peaks and valleys...but what we're seeing now is an unprecedented low."
