    Edible oysters are the most widely cultivated bivalves in the world. They are sedentary animals, which grow by permanently attaching the left valve (lower valve) to the hard substratum and the right valve (upper valve) act as a lid. Oysters occur naturally in the intertidal areas, backwaters, muddy bays, lagoons and creeks with salinities of about 10-25 ppt, though it can tolerate higher salinity. It forms dense aggregations, often called as beds.
