      On predicting the setting season of the oyster Crassostrea iredalei in Himamaylan River, Negros Occidental 

      AL Young & R Traviña - Kalikasan, The Journal of Philippine Biology, 1983 - University of the Philippines at Los Baños
      A spatfall forecasting program in April-November 1981 suggests that daily counts of larvae in plankton samples may be used to forecast spatfall of C. iredalei . Counts of at least five ready-to-settle larvae per 100-liter sample for three to five days indicate that spatfall will occur very soon and that collector materials should be put out immediately.

      Oyster spatfall was good in the months of July, August, and September. Highest larval count was 247 ready-to-settle larvae per 100-liter plankton sample; this led to a record set of 2,423 oyster spat on a string of thirteen shell cultch between August 24 and 31.

      Perna viridis (L.) 1758 as the correct name for the Southeast Asian green mussel (Bivalvia:Mytilidae) 

      AL Young & WG Yap - Philippine Journal of Science, 1984 - Science and Technology Information Institute
      The Southeast Asian green mussel is Perna viridis. The wide separation of the retractor mussel scars in the adult shell and the special set of teeth on the posterior shoulder of the larval shell definitely place the green mussel under the genus Perna ritzius.
