Experiments on the cultivation of oysters in Scotland

Experiments on the cultivation of oysters in Scotland

Scottish Fisheries Research Report, Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for Scotland (35): 20

In experimental raft culture of oysters in sea lochs on the west coast of Scotland, UK, the introduced Crassostrea gigas reached commercial size of 75 to 100 g in 2 years in one shallow sheltered loch with a shallow sill and short tidal range, which was comparatively warm, reaching over 15 degrees C at 2 m depth in summer, but C. gigas required 3 years in the 3 cooler lochs. Temperature was important in summer, but less so in winter when there was little feed available.
