 Why do we grow our oysters on the surface of water?

Feeding by the float oyster bags.

Oysters stay cleaner and do not  contain "grit"

Due to ample light penetration, there is a high availability of micro-algal food for optimal oyster growth

Wave action insures oxygenation of surface water

Disease processes (Dermo & MSX) are absent

Low observed mortality rate of 4%

Growth to minimum market size (3”) in 18-24 months.

 

 

 

 

Feeding at the bottom of water.

Oysters are less aesthetically appealing and contain "grit"

 

Silt at the bottom increases food handling times making it more difficult for oysters to feed

 

Low levels of sunlight at the bottom, restricts the amount of  micro-algal food available

 

Disease processes are resident

 

High mortality rates of >75%

 

Growth to market size: 3 years minimum, if they survive.
