This paper reviews the historical development of marine bivalve mollusc culture and emphasizes hatchery development. A discussion is made of hatchery development and the applicability of this technology to present problems in bivalve aquaculture throughout the world.

The rock lobster fishery has traditionally been New Zealand’s single most important domestic fishery in terms of the number of vessels and fishermen employed and the value of landings and exports. This paper describes the implementation of a controlled or limited entry fishery for New Zealand rock lobsters. The background to the implementation of limited entry is described and the decrease in annual landings per vessel in the period 1955-1977 is pointed out. The New Zealand licensing system is outlined, attention being paid to continuous and seasonal licenses, allocation of licenses, controlled fishing areas, and fishing methods and gear restrictions. The number of rock lobster vessels decreased from 1,574 in 1979 to 970 after the initial round of licensing in 1980-81.

The spawning activity of the bay scallop Argopecten irradians irradians was monitored during the summer (May through September), 1979, in Waquoit Bay, a small embayment on the south shore of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The investigators were interested in learning more about the reproductive cycle and early growth and development of bay scallop populations. This paper reports the gonadal development and spawning activity of adult bay scallop populations within this small embayment. Results indicated that spawning activity of the bay scallop populations occurred predominantly before the summer maximum temperature was recorded. After the summer maximum was reached, most of the gonads appeared spent, thus emphasizing the importance of temperature in stimulating spawning as reported in the literature.
