Abstract

To determine whether oyster reproductive status and particularly ploidy influences levels of human-pathogenic Vibrio spp. in oyster tissues was the overall aim of this project

Our project objectives were three-fold:

1) To determine the relationship between oyster gonadal stage and levels of humanpathogenic Vibrio spp. in two separate pairs of genetically related diploid and triploid oysters through analyses of individual oysters conducted during peak Vibrio season in the York River, Virginia;

2) To determine the relationship between oyster ploidy and levels of humanpathogenic Vibrio spp. in those same oysters; and

3) To determine the degree to which farm-level marine aquaculture practices change based on results of this project..
