Overall notes:

  • Feeding needs to be increased to a point where the water is dark and the oysters are not clearing it
    • Start with 700 mL Reed’s paste in 200 L of water, and increase by 50 mL until water is the desired color
    • Laura will take care of feeding on 7/1/17 and 7/3/17, and I’ll be back on 7/5/17 to check on it
  • Dosing rate is 55%-60%
  • Temperatures indicated are desired, will need to adjust heaters and check AVTECH accordingly
  • Tanks should be vacuumed daily, and drained and cleaned at least once a week
  • If oysters start dying
    • Hold temperature for at least one day
    • Feed 100 mL more Reed’s
    • Resume temperature conditioning after 1-2 days (handler’s discretion)
  • After 7/15/17, oysters should no longer be drained and cleaned
