The production process for larvae and seeds in the
Cultimar Hatchery is described in the adjoining diagram:
The farming processes for Japanese oysters as followed
by most of our clients may be divided into 2 different
individual seeds that can be grown on inter-tidal
racks or suspended on long lines
in lanterns or in hanging nets.
remotely set larvae, using collectors that are
then separated, ending up with individual bunches
containing a series of substrates, usually scallop
shells, to which the oysters cling in variable amounts.
The growing period varies depending on the starting size and on the bio-oceanographic
conditions (temperature, nutrients, etc.) of the site used, from 6 months in
warm waters up to 30 months in cold waters.
