One of the constraints in the development of hatchery techniques for the production of the seed of oysters on e year round basis is the difficulty in getting spawners from the natural stock throughout the year. In order to overcome this. Attempts were made for induction of maturation Of gonads of Crassostree madresensis and to make them spawn. After conditioning the oysters in laboratory, gonads matured within fifteen to twenty days. Spawning was effected by administering thermal stimulation. The conditioning C. madrasensis for maturation of gonads and effective spawning arm described.
