In April, the Danish embassy in China posted a cheeky article on Weibo regarding their invasive oyster issue along the coast of Ribe, a small Danish town.

These giant oysters, known as the Pacific oysters are damaging their shore’s ecological system and are endangering the native Limfjord species.

This has become a major problem after a decade of non-interference by the Danish people and government.

Their expansion is unbridled due to the lack of natural enemies.

The surplus has become a burden, but not to Chinese food enthusiasts who see them as a culinary delicacy.

In response, many Chinese netizens gave witty solutions, most of which mentioned about consuming them all.

Some suggested exporting to China while others wanted tour package deals to bring the Chinese to the location for a feast.

One well received comment recommended “oyster visas” where a 10-year unlimited entry with a maximum stay of 1 month each time would ensure the extinction of these marine mollusks within 5 years.

Following the explosive reaction, a Chinese woman, Ms Bian, who has been living in Denmark for 7 years, took the initiative in helping clear up the shores by collecting and eating 150 kg of oysters in May.

According to the Sichuan native, she wanted to contribute actively to the issue and to cultivate a Sino-Danish friendship.

The Chengdu Business Daily reports that she had dug up massive amounts of oysters and cooked them in Sichuanese style for her family and friends.

Her Danish friends were very receptive to the traditionally spicy orientation.

Over the recent weeks, commercial deals have been discussed between Alibaba and other e-commerce companies to provide exporting services.

The Danish embassy in China also said that they will bring these ideas to the relevant authorities for consideration.
