Nonnative Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay discusses the proposed plan to offset the dramatic decline in the bay’s native oysters by introducing disease-resistant reproductive Suminoe oysters from Asia. It suggests this move should be delayed until more is known about the environmental risks, even though carefully regulated cultivation of sterile Asian oysters in contained areas could help the local industry and researchers. It is also noted that even though these oysters eat the excess algae caused by pollution, it

Contrary to a generally held view that pearls are found by chance in oysters, almost all are now produced from farms. This book is a comprehensive treatment of all aspects of the biology of pearl oysters, their anatomy, reproduction, genetics, diseases, etc. It considers how they are farmed from spawning and culturing larvae in hatcheries to adults in the ocean; how various environmental factors, including pollution affect them; and how modern techniques are successfully producing large numbers of cultured pearls.

Oyster reefs provide valuable habitat for many ecologically and economically important species, as well as stabilising benthic and intertidal habitats. Their bioactivity and structure creation leads to a greater abundance and diversity of other aquatic species. This book focuses on the eastern oyster's aquaculture and diversity of associated species; the cadmium conundrum in British Columbian oysters; the problems and risks related to an exotic oyster introduction case; and the expansion of distribution among spionid polychaetes by accompanying oyster shells during

Oysters have a competitive advantage and dominate other molluscan species with respect to global distribution and aquaculture production. At present, the Pacific oyster has become one of the most important edible oysters in world aquaculture. Recently, with research advancements in oyster farming technology, non-native species invasion, environmental monitoring and disease control, new findings and outcomes have emerged. This book presents the latest research development in oyster reproduction, physiological response to pollution, ecological distribution and management, mass mortality, disease control, and

In 1966 Congress passed the National Sea Grant College Program Act to promote marine research, education, and extension services in institutions along the nation's ocean and Great Lakes coasts. In Maryland a Sea Grant Program -- a partnership among federal and state governments, universities, and industries -- began in 1977, and in 1982 the University of Maryland was named the nation's seventeenth Sea Grant College. The Maryland Sea Grant College focuses its efforts on the Chesapeake Bay, with emphasis on the marine concerns

As the world’s population and the demand for seafood increase, the production of seafood from aquaculture has also seen massive increase and is set to continue. With wild stocks of many molluscan species depleted, aquaculture is firmly recognised as the means now, and for the future, of bridging the gap between the supply and demand of seafood. This important book covers the general biology of bivalves, hatchery culture methods and specific and comprehensive details of the cultivation of many

Before New York City was the Big Apple, it could have been called the Big Oyster. Now award-winning author Mark Kurlansky tells the remarkable story of New York by following the trajectory of one of its most fascinating inhabitants–the oyster, whose influence on the great metropolis remains unparalleled. For centuries New York was famous for its oysters, which until the early 1900s played such a dominant a role in the city’s economy, gastronomy, and ecology that the abundant
