Oyster Husbandry

At The Oyster Restoration Company, we are proud to produce disease-free native oysters that can be used in farming and restoration projects internationally.


To ensure everyone gets the best results from our products, here are some suggestions for stocking and husbandry.


Oyster Stocking Densities


Stocking densities are specific to the site and the species, so you will need to carry out multiple tests to ensure you have the correct formula for your unique situation. That being said, below are some general densities and rules for the standard 25L basket.
