Curious about whether it might kill off the vibrio bacterium, Voisin and a Louisiana microbiologist, Marilyn B. Kilgen, set about arranging for tests.
What Voisin and Kilgen did not anticipate was that the procedure also left the oyster perfectly shucked and intact, ready to be scooped or shaken out of its shell and eaten whole.
Kilgen, chairman of the biology department at Nicholls State University in Louisiana, was the one who opened the oysters in her lab after the tests. When she saw the oyster was shucked, her heart seemed to skip a beat.
"That was one of the highlights in my research career," she said. Mechanical shucking "had been on the back burner for every industry person for so long -- I'd been to meetings where a machine took up the whole stage and a computer would calculate the impact of a knife on a hinge -- but the bottom line is, you still had to cut the muscle loose from the shell, and machines couldn't do that right."
Kilgen called Ernie Voisin and told him the news.
The science of what had taken place was relatively simple, Kilgen said.

Marilyn Kilgen, head of the department of biological science at Nicholls State University and an expert on seafood safety and pathogens, says there might be reason for unease.It all depends on how far out the sewage is discharged and how well it's treated, she says."I know it seems like when you're three miles off shore nothing can ever come back to the beaches and oyster beds," she says.

The press coverage of this issue has largely omitted any mention of the scientist who is arguably Louisiana's leading authority on microbial pathogens in shellfish, Professor Marilyn Kilgen at Nicholl's State University. That is changing and I expect to see Dr. Kilgen's name in future press accounts of the issue.
