Economic Importance for Humans: Positive
Oyster cultch or oyster spat is fairly valuable to jewelry trade, though it is rather abundant, due to the large numbers of existing oysters and their relatively high rate of reproductive success. Certain lime or cement coatings are enhaced by use of the cultch. Some Eastern oysters produce pearls as well. Oyster meat is also smoked and canned as a food.
