Oysters extend over a wide geographic range, and many species are at present farmed throughout the world. These are the flat oysters belonging to the genus Ostrea or the cupshaped oysters of the genus Crassostrea. In Malaysia, at least two species of Crassostrea, viz. C. cucullata and C. rivularis, are found. The methods of culturing oysters vary in different parts of the world. The information provided here gives a summary of the knowledge on the different aspects of oyster culture and is intended to provide basic information on the subject to anyone interested in oyster culture in Malaysia.
