NOAA Photo Library Image - fizh0318

Where spawning conditions are good, oysters in their natural state will attach themselves, one generation on top of another, until great ridges of them exist up to the high tide level. These oysters are of little value as they are of poor quality. They can be improved greatly by spreading them out so that they can grow to desirable market sizes
