Cover, Cultchless (Single-Seed) Oyster Crop Budgets for Virginia: 2013 User Manual

This publication is available in PDF format only.

There are two aquaculture production methods for oysters in Virginia: intensive culture (off-bottom, containerized) and extensive culture (loose on bottom). Intensive culture is also referred to as “cultchless” production because the oyster seed used is single-seed.
