The larvae oyster got fixed, preferably, by the external face of the collector (big valve) in a percentage of 64,3, while on the external face this percentage was 35,7%. The average height of the oysters during the whole period of study was 52 mm, with a monthly increment of 5,2 mm. The percentage of the oysters survival was 84,4%.
