Intertidal Lentz System Bag Culture of Oysters
Jerry Ryggs & Raymond RaLonde

The Lentz system is a growout system currently being use in Washington state. The system is undergoing a trial study in Alaska. The intent of the Lentz system is to grow a superior quality oyster while utilizing less labor that will enable significant operation cost reduction. This presentation describes a large trial growout study on the Oysters LLC farm owned by Jerry Ryggs near Naukati, Alaska, on the east coast of Prince of Wales Island.
