Oyster

Refined raft and longline culture method

SEAFDEC, UPV, and Samar State University (SSU), in collaboration with DOST-PCAARRD, improves local production and produces safe and quality oyster harvest.  With the refined raft and longline culture method, the oyster farmer can now produce harvestable weights of 75-90 grams within seven months compared to the traditional method (8-10 months).

Pouch and tray methods

SEAFDEC, UPV, and Samar State University (SSU), in collaboration with DOST-PCAARRD, improves local production and ensures safe and quality oyster harvest. The pouch and tray methods produce uniform weight, quality meat, and meat yield of 27–29% higher than that of the traditional method that produces only 14.5– 18.9% meat yield. These methods result in an …

Site Characterization and Implementation of Innovative Sustainable Oyster Systems

The SCI2SOS project funded under the CRADLE Program of DOST aims to establish oyster mariculture areas through sustainable means and by using science-based decision making in the monitoring of such oyster mariculture. The project was originally proposed as an alternative livelihood to fisherfolk, especially during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to provide …

Establishment of Sanitary Quality of Oysters and Their Culture Condition

Ideal growing areas for oysters were identified, where relaying sites were established, which could be able to reduce E. coli counts from 24,000 MPN/ 100 g to ≤ 20 MPN/ 100 g after 2 weeks of relaying, making the raw oyster safe for human consumption. Comprehensive data on the sanitary quality of the oyster growing …

Genetic structure of slipper shaped oyster

Studies on genetic structure of populations and its morphological association are important to advance oyster farming. This study was focused to look at the genetic structure of Crassostrea iredalei populations in the Philippines using microsatellites markers through optimization of the identified five loci. This project was conducted in 5 Provinces, Iloilo, Aklan, Capiz, Negros Occidental …
