Description Domestication by selective breeding requires specific knowledge of performance-related traits in commercially exploited aquaculture species. A small number of deep-cupped Pacific oysters, Crassostrea gigas, were transferred from a Tasmanian shellfish hatchery to Washington state. Thirty-four of these were spawned to establish an F1 generation. F1 Tasmanian oysters were grown in the field in comparative growout trials and their survival, growth rate, and shell morphology were monitored. During... Thesis (Ph.
