cultchless
 adj.— «The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, for example, stood by as nearly 750,000 such “cultchless” oysters were eaten by cow-nosed rays in two days earlier this spring at a reef site on the Piankatank River. Cultchless is another term for a single oyster, a separate animal, which a ray can more easily slurp compared with several developing babies on one, big shell.» —“For oysters, a restoration shell game on the water” by Scott Harper Virginian-Pilot (Hampton Roads, Virginia) Sept. 20, 2006.
