Industry Survey of Desired Traits for Gulf Oysters

The Gulf of Mexico Oyster Genetics and Breeding Research Consortium is seeking your help. The consortium is coordinating the SALT (Selection of Aquaculture Lines with Improved Traits) project to develop lines of eastern oyster bred for improved performance in the Gulf of Mexico. These lines will be made available to industry operating in the Gulf region. Your input is being sought to define project objectives through the following survey. The survey takes only a few minutes to complete and growers’ feedback will be of great value in developing this important resource for oyster aquaculture. Please return responses to Heather King, (email). If you have any questions, contact Kelly Lucas, Director, Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center, University of Southern Mississippi at 228-818-8026 (phone) or (email). The project team  appreciates your participation!
