Management of oysters requires understanding their tolerance to multiple stressors. As estuarine conditions are changed through climate impacts, and human activities, more extreme conditions impact oyster grounds; identifying these impacts on individual oyster populations, and ploidies informs the development of more accurate models of oyster growth, survival and production, and helps identify critical broodstock to support the oyster industry.
