Contents Notes
"The proposed introduction of the Asian "Suminoe" oyster, Crassostrea ariakensis, raises many questions about how this species might interact with the native Easter oyster, C.virginica. Despite considerable declines in population, the Eastern oyster persists in many areas and numerous recovery efforts are underway; thus, the extent to which Asian oysters would compete with native oysters is of particular interest. Other factors, such as predation if one species is favored as a prey item, may influence the result of competitiinteractionion between the two species. Field and laboratory studies are providing valuable insight on these potential interactions ... although the long-term outcome remains uncertain."
