The development of artificially fertilised eggs of the rock oyster,\ud Saccostrea cucullata (von Born) was studied in the laboratory. The\ud morphological and behavioural characteristics of the developing larvae\ud were observed. A mixed diet of single celled algae consisting of Isochrysis\ud galbana and Tetraselmis gracilis was fed to the larvae.
