Day 0 Sampling- Olympia Oyster OA Project

For my last morning in Washington state, Sam White and myself dissected 48 Olympia oysters for 3 different tissue types as part of an adult Olympia oyster/rock scallop ocean acidification experiment. Sam already wrote up a great summary of the day in his lab notebook. A list of all adult oysters sampled this summer, including those used in the adult OA experiment, can be found here or at the appropriate link under “Datasheets” in this lab notebook. This datasheet includes the date dissected, treatment tub, weight in grams, reproductive status at time of sampling, date of mortality (if oyster died prior to being dissected), and which tissues were samples. To measure size of oyster, I have labelled pictures of every oyster with a ruler in a Dropbox folder. I also wrote up a dissection protocol for subsequent sampling days.
