SHELLFISH AND CULTIVATION
4000 gallons of eastern oyster seed imported to Willapa. State fish commissioner calls for consideration of importation of Japanese oysters (Kershaw 1902). Washington State Fish Commissioner reports that eastern oysters will not propagate in Washington due to temperature after a series of experiments (Doane, in Kershaw 1902). Eastern oysters successfully propagated in Willapa Bay in the vicinity of the Naselle River (Kincaid 1928).
