{Parental families (Go) in three lines of Pacific oysters were selected based on live weight and meat yields at harvest. The average live weight yield of progeny (G(1)) from crossing Go-selected lines in seven trials was 9.5% greater than that of nonselected control families and live weight yields were significantly greater (ANOVA, P0.05). A significant genotype x environment interaction affected yields in both cohort 5 and cohort 7 (ANOVA; P
