Projects per year
IMARES carried out mussel (Mytilus edulis) and oyster (Crassostrea gigas) stock assessments in the littoral areas of the Dutch Wadden Sea, Oosterschelde bay and Westerschelde estuary in 2015. Both surface bed area as well as total biomass stock were assessed. These surveys are part of the annual shellfish inventories, as commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs (EZ) and carried out by IMARES, in collaboration with both the fisheries industry and the ministry of EZ. These surveys are conducted to aid policy makers with regard to the shellfish industry, and are an important source of information for further ecosystem studies.
