National review of Ostrea angasi aquaculture: historical culture, current methods and future priorities

  title={National review of Ostrea angasi aquaculture: historical culture, current methods and future priorities},
  author={Christine M Crawford},
Currently in Australia Ostrea angasi oysters ( angasi ) are being cultured on a small scale, with several farmers growing relatively small numbers of angasis on their predominately Sydney rock or Pacific oyster farms. Very few farmers are culturing commercially viable quantities of angasi oysters. There are several reasons for this. Although angasi oysters occur in the intertidal zone, they are naturally most abundant in the subtidal and are less tolerant of fluctuating environmental…

Sustainable large‐scale production of European flat oyster ( Ostrea edulis ) seed for ecological restoration and aquaculture: a review

A summary of all available knowledge and technologies of O. edulis seed production is provided and future research needs on sex determinism, gametogenesis, cryopreservation, nutrition, selective breeding, pathogens and disease, and the development of reliable protocols for production are highlighted.

Restoring Angasi oyster reefs: what is the endpoint ecosystem we are aiming for and how do we get there?

Three-dimensional reefs and beds created predominately by the native Angasi Oyster or Flat Oyster (Ostrea angasi) were once common across its range in Australia's southern coastal waters but were

Current Status of Critically Endangered Fan Mussel Pinna nobilis (Linnaeus 1758) Population in Çanakkale Strait, Turkey

The population of Pinna nobilis (Linnaeus, 1758) has been severely damaged, especially by the effect of the disease, in addition to the causes such as fishing activities, overexploitation,

Cuing oyster recruitment with shell and rock: implications for timing reef restoration

Reducing uncertainty surrounding the biological responses of degraded habitat is key to providing confidence and efficiency in its restoration. Many coastal habitats are so extensively degraded that

Some Like it Hot: The Ecology, Ecosystem Benefits and Restoration Potential of Oyster Reefs in Tropical Waters

Oysters are ecosystem engineers that form biogenic reef habitats in shallow coastal and estuarine waters and provide important ecosystem services. Widespread global declines have triggered a

Heat shock protein 70 levels and post-harvest survival of eastern oysters following sublethal heat shock in the laboratory or conditioning in the field

In conclusion, upregulation of HSP70 proteins or aerial exposure during grow-out was not an effective tool in reducing the mortality of oysters harvested in summer and held in cold storage.

Can prior exposure to stress enhance resilience to ocean warming in two oyster species?

Stress inoculation by heat shock did little to ameliorate the negative effects of increased temperature, although the survival of heat-shocked flat oysters was greater than non-heat shocked oysters, and further investigations are required to determine if early exposure to heat stress can enhance resilience of oysters to ocean warming.



Laboratory Rearing of Larval Ostrea Angasi in Tasmania, Australia

Larval development differs from that in the closely related New Zealand mud oyster and provides further evidence to separate these species.

Paving the way for continued rapid development of the flat (angasi) oyster (Ostrea angasi) farming industry in New South Wales

The extremely low level of genetic variation detected in this study suggests that the range of the Australian flat oyster has expanded to its current distribution relatively recently in evolutionary terms, perhaps following European settlement.

First report of the European flat oyster Ostrea edulis, identified genetically, from Oyster Harbour, Albany, south-western Western Australia

The results emphasise the value of molecular markers in: (1) discriminating morphologically plastic and closely related species; and, thus the monitoring of species introduced into morphologically similar stocks.

Gene flow, colonisation and demographic history of the flat Oyster ostrea angasi

There is no significant genetic differentiation among the sampled New South Wales estuaries (P > 0.05) and all eastern samples represent a geographically homogeneous population, which essentially removes any potential constraints on broodstock sourcing and spat translocation within this region.

Dietary influence on growth and development of flat oyster, Ostrea angasi (Sowerby, 1871), larvae

In hatchery production of O. angasi larvae, ternary diets of T. Iso combined with either P. lutheri or N. oculata were the best diets to maximize larval growth rate, development and survival 24 h post metamorphosis.

Historical epidemiology indicates water quality decline drives loss of oyster (Saccostrea glomerata) reefs in Moreton Bay, Australia

Rehabilitation of the ecosystem will require effective catchment management targeting reductions in nutrient and sediment loading, as well as restoration of oyster reefs using QX-resistant oysters.
