Thesis title:Effects of basket arrangement and stocking density when using the adjustable long-line system for oyster grow-out

My thesis project examined the effects of stocking density, basket density and basket orientation on oyster growth and condition in an adjustable long-line system (ALS) at the Portersville Bay Oyster Research Farm. Baskets were either strung parallel (in-line) or perpendicular (cross-line) to a 300' tensioned line which was strung between riser posts. The ALS, developed in Australia, is suitable for off-bottom culture of oysters in Alabama. The cross-line orientation of baskets is enticing to farmers because it has the potential to significantly increase production capacity.
