Abstract

Studies undertaken during 1976 on the gonadal maturity of the backwater oyster Crassostrea madtasensis at Tuticorin revealed a biannual spawning periodicity. March-April and August-September were found to be the peak periods of spawning. A broad correlation has been observed between diurnal temperature difference and spawning of oyster
