This study identifies a way to develop more efficient spat collecting techniques that may compensate for the lower survival rate of the oysters caused by the B. ostreae parasite. It is part of the EU project Oysterecover aimed at investigating the causes and possible solutions to the decline in the European flat oyster (Ostrea edulis) due to the Bonamia ostreae parasite. Spat can be harvested directly from the field, or obtained by introducing substrate, also called collectors, in the water during the period that freeswimming larvae are present.
