The effect of growing height on mortality of Sydney rock oysters, Saccostrea glomerata, caused by Australian winter mortality Mikrocytos roughleyi was evaluated on a commercial intertidal growing lease on the Georges River, NSW, Australia. The mortality level of 35.1"8.4% at normal growing height, fell to 9.3"0.9% when oysters were cultured 300-mm higher, and increased to 52.4"0.2% at 300-mm lower in the tidal range. No significant growth penalty was evident at the higher growing level, and no… CONTINUE READING
