Bluff Oyster Management Company staff member Vic Brown shows off a spawning Bluff oyster. The spawn is the dark grey matter in the bottom right of the oyster. Spawning Bluff oysters contain up to 50,000 larvae. Almost a million Bluff oysters that don't contain spawn will be eaten by customers of Big Fresh and Woolworths supermarkets between now and the end of the year.
