Fisheries. Production of Hatchery-raised Oyster Larvae at the Michael C. Voisin Oyster Hatchery in Grand Isle, Louisiana

AUTHORS: Erin Leonhardt, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries

ABSTRACT: The Michael C. Voisin Oyster Hatchery in Grand Isle, Louisiana opened in the summer of 2015 and is operated by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in collaboration with Louisiana Sea Grant. Raising hatchery-produced oyster larvae requires detailed management of water filtration, larval production, and algal production systems. Getting these systems up and running required learning new technologies and developing and modifying standard operating procedures and protocols. Experience gained during the 2015 hatchery season allowed for a more streamlined and successful production of larvae and algae in 2016. Hatchery systems, operating methods, total larval production, larval and spat deployment locations, and pediveliger production for creating spat-on-shell will all be discussed.
