do farmed oysters get bigger than oysters in the wild?

    Farmed oysters generally are larger than their wild counterparts. One reason for this is because they are bred to exploit their ‘hybrid vigor.’ Hybrid vigor is a breeding process generally used in farming certain vegetables such as corn in which, when two separate inbred strains are mixed, the resulting offspring is much larger than the parents.
