Description 
Summary

Ecological data have been collected in Thermaikos Gulf to study experimental cultivation of Ostrea edulis, within the framework of a three-year research project. The measured ecological parameters were collected from two near-shore sites (Macrygialos, Halastra) and one offshore site. Samplings were made during the months February, May and September. Analysis of the data indicated that under the measured ecological parameters in Thermaikos Gulf the Ostrea edulis gets a commercial weight (80 Grams) in a period of approximately 36 months.
