Default Abnormal Shrinkage?

So OK,. this thread is about steamed oysters..........

I have been enjoying oysters many years now and have come to the realization that over the past year or two, steamed oysters seem to be smaller than I used to recall.
I know oysters will shrink some when steamed but the last few times I have eaten them (from Florida Panhandle to New Orleans) they are about 1/4 of raw size.

Is is just me or are restaurants over cooking these badboys nowadays???

Well, if they are cooked at all, they are over cooked.
