Abstract
Because of increasingly heavy exploitation of the few natural edible oyster beds on the Kenya coast, and the apparent lack of any natural regeneration, an investigation was made of the biology and cultural possibilities of this oyster in 1953/54 (van Someren and Whitehead, in Press). The full report of this investigation is still awaiting publication at the time of writing the present paper (October, 1959), but since the main investigation was completed, experiments have been in progress in subsequent years into the cultural aspects. The results of these now appear to be worth recording for the benefit of the trade, without awaiting publication of the full report.
