Crassostrea virginica, eastern oyster Background The eastern oyster inhabits waters from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Gulf of Mexico and West Indies. DNA evidence suggests there are genetic differences in oysters over very broad spatial scales (Hoover and Gaffney , Reeb and Avise ). A species profile for the eastern oyster was File Size: KB. In western North American in the late s, pollution and overfishing depleted the beds of the native Olympia oyster Ostrea conchaphila, so Crassostrea virginica was imported from the east coast. Western summer temperatures were too cool for dependable reproduction to occur in C. virginica, so small seed oysters (~ cm) were imported annually and held in coastal .

Modulation of non-specific immunity by environmental by: The eastern oyster —also called Wellfleet oyster, Atlantic oyster, Virginia oyster, or American oyster—is a species of true oyster native to the eastern seaboard and Gulf of Mexico coast of North America. It is also farmed in Puget Sound, Washington, where it is known as the Totten Inlet Virginica. Eastern oysters are and have been very popular commercially. Class: Bivalvia.

The American oyster, Crassostrea virginica, has some metabolic traits typical of marine bivalve molluscs, andsome that are apparently umption is rapid when the valves are open, but may become and remain zero for days on closure. Rates of nitrogen-excretion are similar to those of other marine bivalves; the Cited by:   Key words: vibriosis, larval oysters, Crassostrea virginica, histology, electron microscopy, ultrastructure, immunofluorescence, oyster hatcheryDes larves d'huîtres ont été infectées expérimentalement par des isolats de cultures pures de Vibrio sp. marins.
