The Virginia Seafood Council (VSC) project for 2003-2005 focused on industry field trials with genetic triploid Crassoslrea ariakensis. This entailed deployment of approximately 100,000 C. ariakensis at each often industry participants' private oyster grounds to test aquaculture grow-out methods and marketability. In addition deployment of genetic triploid C. virginica allowed for a side-by-side comparison.
