Description 
Summary

Oysters were dredged from the Solent during the spawning season in 1985, 1986 and 1987. Data on the size and fecundity of oysters were collected. Larvae were taken from the brooding parent oysters. Data on their weight and biochemical composition during development from embryo to pre-release larvae (180 microm) were collected.
