Sea Grant researcher Wilbur Breese is checking the growth rate of cultured oyster spat. He set up a pilot oyster hatchery at Oregon State University's Marine Science Center in 1965. His investigations succeeded in unlocking mysteries of oyster reproduction and paved the way for establishment of commercial oyster seed hatcheries.
