Nayar, K Nagappan and Rajapandian, M E and Easterson, D C V (1982) Purification of farm grown oysters. In: Proceedings of the Symposium on Coastal Aquaculture; Part 2: Molluscan Culture, MBAI, 12-18 January 1980, Cochin.



The purification of farm grown oysters by scientific methods is essential before they are marketed. Oyster farming is a new venture in India and the technique has recently been perfected by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. The most important task is to perfect the depuration process for which there is no standard method. The present paper gives a satisfactory plan for small scale purification of harvested oysters before they are marketed for safe human consumption.
