Abstract

Two leases of oyster planting ground adjacent to the James River Bridge at the Newport News end were studied in December, 1978. Sampling revealed that one area contained large quantities of oysters while, on the other area, oysters were scarce. Comparison with sample results and fathometer-traced bottom profiles taken in a 1976 study of the same areas indicates a close similarity.
