Abstract: Generally, the pearl oyster industry relies on spat from the wild, although in recent times also sources these from hatcheries. The Fijian pearling industry relies mostly on spat collection from the wild. Thus, spat collection has a significant influence on the success of the Fijian pearl oyster industry. This study seeks to establish the influence of depth and immersion time of spat collectors on the recruitment of juveniles in two adjacent sites, Namarai Bay and Naocobau Bay, along the north-eastern coast of Viti Levu in Fiji.
