Abstract

Throughout the world natural spat collection forms the basis of most oyster culture industries. Along the Pacific Northwest USA coast, hatchery produced seed are used in the cultivation of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas. Natural seed collection is cheaper when compared to the cost of seed produced in the hatchery but is unpredictable. However, in the recent years, more efficient methods of setting the oyster seed in remote areas have been developed and this method is widely practiced now
