Abstract
THE PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT RESEARCH ON POLYCULTURE OF OY- STERS IN PONDS WITH MARINE SHRIMPL SURVIVAL OF OYSTERS IN STATIC WATER PONDS IS LOW, BUT IT IS ANTICIPATED THE SURVI- VAL AND GROWTH WILL BE GOOD IN PONDS WHERE AERATION DEVICES CAUSE WATER TO CIRCULATE WITHIN THE POND. BESIDES THE OB- VIOUS ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO BE DERIVED FROM THE SALE OF OY- STERS, BENEFITS TO GENERAL POND PRODUCTIVITY ARE ANTICIPATEDCONVERSION OF PHYTOPLANKTON TO FECES AND PSEUDOFECES SHOULD HAVE A SPARING EFFECT ON SHRIMP FEED REQUIREMENTS. ALSO THEOYSTERS AND THEIR CULTURE SUPPORTS EILL PROVIDE GROWTH SITESFOR MANY ORGANISMS CONSUMED BY SHRIMP.
