Shell of oyster has a function of shelter from predator as well as growth potential. We investigated the physicochemical characteristics of oyster shells from three difference oyster farms. The shells from Wando waters characterized high stability of nanostructure, ticker nacreous layer, high thermal decomposition temperature and low content of sulphur as well. These results represent that Wando coast is pristine water for oyster farming.
