GARDUNHO, D. C. L.; GOMES, C. P.; TAGLIARO, C. H. & BEASLEY, C. R. (2012) Settlement of an unidentified oyster (Crassostrea) and other epibenthos on plastic substrates at a northern Brazilian mangrove island. Braz. J. Aquat. Sci. Technol. 16(1): 41-51. eISSN 1983-9057. Management and culture of mangrove oysters may reduce harvesting pressure on natural populations in northern Brazil. Densities of oyster seed, scars and other epibenthos on plastic sheets and bottles were observed over two years…

USE OF ARTIFICIAL COLLECTORS TO OBTAIN OYSTER SEEDS IN BABITONGA BAY, SANTA CATARINA, BRAZIL
TLDR
Results demonstrate that artificial collectors present a higher performance for the settlement of oyster species inappropriate for farm cultivation (C. talonata and Ostrea sp.), which raises environmental and commercial concerns about the maintenance of the natural oyster population in Babitonga Bay.
Oyster culture on the Amazon mangrove coast: asymmetries and advances in an emerging sector
Oyster culture activity along the eastern Amazon mangrove coast in Par a state, Brazil, was evaluated using socio-economic data to support its management and future development. Between 2013 and
The effect of density on the cultivation of the native mangrove oyster Crassostrea tulipa (Lamarck, 1819)
TLDR
A high survival rate (≥98%) was found in the nursery and juvenile phases, and the animals' individual average weight and H/L ratio were negatively influenced by a density of 100 ind/0.10 m or bigger.
Multiplex species-specific PCR identification of native and non-native oysters (Crassostrea) in Brazil: a useful tool for application in oyster culture and stock management
TLDR
This molecular approach provides a simple and rapid identification of the oyster species from the Brazilian coast, thus increasing the efficient and quality of oyster culture programs by reducing the risk of wrong species identification.
Molecular identification of native oysters on the coast of Maranhão, Brazil
TLDR
The results of the Multiplex PCR revealed two distinct bands characteristic of the species C. gasar and C. brasiliana, reinforcing the taxonomic problems in this group, which supports the synonymization of these species.
Alternative Substrates Used for Oyster Reef Restoration: A Review
TLDR
Results highlight the need for common metrics across projects to ease comparison between alternative substrate options and demonstrate a substantial variety in terms of specific metrics used and application of metrics to assess alternative substrates.
Novel Microsatellite Markers for Brazilian Mangrove Oysters (Crassostrea gasar) and their Cross-Amplification in Crassostrea rhizophorae
TLDR
A microsatellite CT/GT enriched genomic library was developed for Crassostrea gasar and twelve new polymorphic loci were isolated and characterized and there was no evidence of linkage between loci in either species.

Molecular identification, phylogeny and geographic distribution of Brazilian mangrove oysters (Crassostrea)
Oysters (Ostreidae) manifest a high degree of phenotypic plasticity, whereby morphology is of limited value for species identification and taxonomy. By using molecular data, the aim was to
Settlement Dynamics of the Encrusting Epibenthic Macrofauna in Two Creeks of the Caeté Mangrove Estuary (North Brazil)
The epibenthic encrusting fauna of 2 creeks of the Caeté mangrove estuary, northern Brazil, was studied over a 13 month period using collectors fixed at 2.5 and 3.5 m above the creek bottom and in
A simple PCR‐RFLP method for the discrimination of native and introduced oyster species (Crassostrea brasiliana, C. rhizophorae and C. gigas; Bivalvia: Ostreidae) cultured in Southern Brazil
TLDR
A simple PCR-RFLP that can be used to discriminate the oyster species cultivated in the Brazilian coast (C. brasiliana, C. rhizophorae and C. gigas) is described.
Trans-Atlantic Distribution of a Mangrove Oyster Species Revealed by 16S mtDNA and Karyological Analyses
TLDR
The predominant surface circulation patterns in this part of the Atlantic Ocean favor the hypothesis that C. gasar was transported from Africa to America, and a phylogenetic tree built with seven 16S sequences from Crassostrea and Saccostrea species showed that C gasar is intermediate between the American Crassstrea species and the Asian species.
Crassostrea gigas in natural oyster banks in southern Brazil
TLDR
Under most circumstances, water temperatures in the coastal southerly Brazil current would be too high to allow for the establishment of stable populations of C. gigas, but the production of spat in oyster farm laboratories has probably selected for resistance to warmer temperatures, which would promote invasion by C. gigs.
Improvement of remote setting of the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) on French platic pipes
The oysters culture in France is based on a natural spatfall, collected on cultches in setting areas. The collectors are then transfered on intertidal parcs for development during 1.5 to 3 years. The
Mollusc Gathering in Northeast Brazil: An Ethnoecological Approach
Mangrove estuarineareas often support an abundance of mollusc species that are largely sessile in nature and constitute an important in situ fishery (Hamilton and Snedaker, 1984; Macintosh, 1982;
Post-Settlement Survival and Growth of the Suminoe Oyster, Crassostrea ariakensis, Exposed to Simulated Emersion Regimes
TLDR
Results indicate that even with modest aerial exposure, under climatic conditions characteristic of summers in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, C. ariakensis would suffer high rates of early post-settlement mortality, effectively restricting this non-native oyster species to subtidal environments if introduced to the region.
