Abstract

This report is the result of a risk analysis on the introduction of exotic non-indigenous species – species that have their origin outside the North Atlantic Continental Shelf region – with the import of bottom culture mussels from the Isefjord and the Limfjord (Denmark) into the Oosterschelde. Based on available literature data and expert judgement, the target species are identified and the risks of these species are assessed semiBquantitively. It is concluded that the risk of introducing exotic non-indigenous species into the Oosterschelde with the import of mussels from the Isefjord and the Limfjord is low.
