The goal of this project was to design and implement a simple, single oyster setting system. More intricate single seed setting systems are typically employed at commercial shellfish hatcheries. However, this project aimed to demonstrate a simplified single seed setting system using existing crab shedding systems making it possible for a wider spectrum of the seafood industry.
