Abstract

Oysters are one of the most valued seafood and are farmed extensively. Nearly eleven species of oysters are commercially popular and of these Crassostrea gigas is the most important. In Asia during the year 2003, 4.2 million tonnes of oysters were produced of which 3.6 million tonnes was from China contributing to 87% of the continents oyster production . Korea and Malaysia also produce significant quantities of oyster. Concerted efforts to develop the oyster farming technology have been made since 1970 ‘s at the Tuticorin Research Centre of CMFRI. Initially natural seed were used. The development of hatchery technology for large-scale oyster seed production in 1982 at the Shellfish Hatchery of CMFRI, Tuticorin gave further impetus for oyster culture. Several location testing programs for oyster culture have been taken up at many centres along the Indian coast, using both the natural and hatchery seed.
