Nayar, K Nagappan and Easterson, D C V (1982) A plan for molluscan experimental hatchery at Tuticorin, India. In: Proceedings of the Symposium on Coastal Aquaculture, Part 2, MBAI, 12-18 January 1980, Cochin.



The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has developed techniques of oyster culture aimed at production for marketing. At present it is a semi culture depending on nature for collection of spat. Reliance on wild spat has to be reduced since it does not guarantee seed supply at all times. A plan has been evolved for hatchery production of oyster seeds. The paper describes the hatchery system being developed at Tuticorin. The layout with green house, sea water filtration, and purification and temperature control systems has been so designed as to achieve tangible result
