Author(s): Surya Darma, M Ali S and Safrida

Abstract: The aim of the study was to analyze population structure, growth patterns and determine the environmental conditions of wild oyster habitat that grows in Banda Aceh City, Indonesia. The study was conducted from April to May 2017 in three locations that represent the wild oyste habitat in Banda Aceh City, Indonesia. The study locations are Alue Naga, Gano and Gampong Pande. The methode that has been used to collect sampling in this study was square transect. Results revealed that, there was five oyster species in the Banda Aceh, namely Saccrostreacucullata,Crasosstrea irredelei,Crasosstreagigas, Oestrea edulis,Crasosstrea virginica. The most common oyster species was Crasosstrea irredelei. The highest density was observed in the Gampong Pande waters and the lowest in the Gano waters, respectively. The pattern of oyster distributionwas found in clustered and formed oyster reef. The negative allometric growth pattern was observed in the oyster species. The environmental conditions consisted of plankton abundance and chemical-phisical parameters of the waters of Banda Aceh City have a normal carrying capacity for oysters to grow.
