something changes, stop selling the oysters as your brand OR communicate to buyers what is different (e.g., size, salinity) Hard to raise your price once set On flip side, need to leave room for others to make money in the process
so that you are not weighing water For very small seed, drain on a sieve and pat them dry Make sure scales are in same units Make sure scales are precise enough to give you good measures Make sure that your sub- samples are representative of the entire sample E.g., if there are dead seed in the big sample, sub- samples have to have a ‘fair’ chance of having them in there Decide how you are counting doubles, triples, etc.
1. Zero out the container or subtract the weight 2. Take sub-samples from the sample 1. Label the sub-sample 2. Make sure sub-samples are not biased 3. Take at least 3 3. Get a weight for each sub- sample 4. Get a count of live, single oysters from each sub- sample 5. Calculate the number of oysters per unit of weight 6. Multiply the total weight by the number of oysters per unit of weight 7. You now have your estimate!
