Ogunola Oluniyi Solomon, Onada Olawale AhmedAbstract:
The oyster culture is a profitable and operationally diverse aquaculture industry that has prevailed worldwide. Different culture techniques have been employed from farm to farm, with growers using either, the rack and rail method, longlines, or a combination of two or more methods to grow oysters. They are grown in either intertidal or subtidal marine zones, with post-harvest activities taking place predominantly at land-based facilities. There are number of environmental issues that are relevant to the growing of oysters in the coastal waters. These are typically associated with the operation of the farm or the land-based service facility. If the farm is designed or managed inappropriately, there is a potential for ecological harm. Therefore, this paper reviewed some of the ecological damage associated with oyster culture and proffered possible solutions to the problems.Pages: 01-06 | 1125 Views 139 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
