SURVIVAL OF OYSTERS IN STATIC WATER PONDS IS LOW, BUT IT IS ANTICIPATED THE SURVIVAL AND GROWTH WILL BE GOOD IN PONDS WHERE AERATION DEVICESCAUSE WATER TO CIRCULATE WITHIN THE POND. BESIDES THE OBV IOUS ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO BE DERIVED FROM THE SALE OF OYSTERS, BENEFITS TO GENERAL POND PRODUCTIVITY ARE ANTICIPA TED. CONVERSION OF PHYTIPLANKTON TO FECES AND PSEUDOFECES ALSO THE OYSTERS AND THEIR CULTURE SUPPORTS WILL PROVIDE GROWTH SITES FOR MANY ORGANISMS CONSUMED BY SHRIMP. THE POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATION AS DESCRIBED BY THE AWARDEE: MARCULTURE FARMS IN THE U.S. PRACTICING INTENSIVE AND SEMI-INTENSIVE CULTURE OF PENAEID SHRIMP WITH AERATION DEVICES WHICH CAUSE THE WATER IN THE POND TO CIRCULATE WITH IN THE POND.
