Ostrea edulis, Other Bivalve Species Aquaculture, Seed Production, Oyster Supplier (Grow-out, Wild Fishery)
We have been growing Ostrea edulis for years now in Croatia to be sold as fresh to the restaurants and directly to final customers. We are very interested in keeping our growing location disease free and to work on projects that will improve the biology and technology of growing flat oysters. At the moment we collect our spat from the wild on collectors but would like to get access to a hatchery or to build our own in the near future.
I have almost 30 years of experience in studies of marine bivalves, both from the perspective of their aquaculture and from their use in environmental research. I have extensive experience in bivalve culture techniques from broodstock, larval culture and seed, as well as in the assessment of physiological rates that integrate the energy balance in order to estimate their energy potential or SFG (scope for growth). I have also been interested in the nutritional requirements and digestive biochemistry of different species of bivalves, mainly during growing, in order to develop alternative diets. I have been involved in pollution and toxicological studies using bivalves as biomonitors and species model. Actually, I am promoting, together with almost 20 scientists from different disciplines, the recovery of the environmental quality of the Mar Menor lagoon (SE Spain), severely affected by eutrophication, by the restoration of the flat oyster beds.

MAREA - marie curie project
I am starting a new project on restorative aquaculture in the NW Adriatic . Generally interested in organisms-environment interactions (eco physiology and ecology) and restoration of ecosystem functionality
Our goal at OSH is to provide disease free O. edulis spat of the highest quality for habitat restoration and grow out purposes. We utilise high intensity influent and effluent sterilisation as well as a number of RASs and novel spawning and setting systems to achieve high levels of biosecurity.
We produce Ostrea edulis for both the table and restoration market on our disease free farm in Wester Ross, Scotland. We have been involved in the on growing of the 'Native' since we started the farm and as a result have a great respect for this little creature and appreciate the challanges involved in their cultivation. We are a key supply chain partner of the Glenmorangie DEEP project and are working closely with that project to deliver significant volumes of part grown stock for relaying in the Dornoch Firth. We are also greatly interested in preservation of existing wild Scottish population and are working with others to identify, protect and enhance these.
Breeding flat oysters for Bonamia resistance in Denmark
I have worked with spatting ponds for 8 years and have found it works really good for flat oyster production and spat on shell for bottom culture production I am interested in spatting ponds and bottom culture and ways to improve that Restauration is in my view bottomculture without harvest, so my experience would translate very well for that.

Ostrea edulis, Other Bivalve Species Aquaculture, Disease, Genetics, Invasive Species
I am an Assistant Professor of Animal Genetics in the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, University of Western Macedonia, Greece. My research interest and expertise includes, inter alia, molecular genetics and genomics of bivalve species, with a particular focus on population biology, detection of bivalve pathogens and new invasive parasites, bivalve physiology, and development and / or application of molecular markers for the discrimination of closely related species in the context of traceability issues. Effects of climate change on the general ecology of bivalves fall under my research interests as well. Finally, all aspects of aquaculture are also among my research interests.
Orasay Edulis is based on the island of Barra in the Western Isles of Scotland. We take seed from disease free hatcheries and grow them using the latest aquaculture methods to get the best growth and survival. The waters around Barra do not have a population of edulis. We know this because neither divers nor dredgers have found live stock; there are no old shells turning up on our shores; our local Pacific oyster farm sees no settlement of edulis on either shells or on equipment. All of the above is very important for biosecurity reasons. We recently (July 2020) took in 100,000 O. edulis seed from Morecambe bay hatchery and have been growing them in suspended culture. Growth and survival has been good to date. We are happy to discuss supply of stock to meet your project's needs.

The Mar Menor oyster project (OstraMM)
I have a PhD from the University of Barcelona obtained in 2010. My research background is in the ecology, biology, and pathology of benthic invertebrates, with a particular focus on the ecological role that filter-feeders, such as bivalves, play in the ecosystem. I have studied the role of bivalves in shaping coastal environments, e.g. mitigating the symptoms of eutrophication, reducing the occurrence of harmful and nuisance algal blooms, and restoring ecosystem functions. Also, I have investigated how the environment can affect the health and physiology of the invertebrates themselves including both immune and pathological studies. My research has provided valuable information for the management of aquaculture species, fisheries and natural resources, as well as for conservation and restoration purposes.

I am an applied ecologist working in marine and freshwater habitats to understand the consequences of individual variation in behaviour, survival, growth and reproduction of organisms in a population, community and evolution context. A great deal of the research in my group at Essex is on shellfish and fish including aquaculture and wild fisheries, and restoration and recovery of fish and shellfish stocks and habitats. At Essex we work from individual physiological responses of shellfish in our marine laboratories to the ecology of on bed mariculture and fisheries at multiple spatial scales. We work closely with oyster producers in Essex and beyond to deliver sustainable and profitable businesses and food security from the blue growth sector. Beyond shellfish and fish our group also works on saltmarshes, coastal marshes, mudflat and seagrass beds from microbial ecosystem functions to carbon capture and all services in between.

Solent Oyster Restoration Project
I am a marine biologist, specialised in Marine Ecology, currently PhD student at the Institute of Marine Sciences of Portsmouth (University of Portsmouth, UK). My research involves the hatchery production of the native oyster O.edulis as spat-on-shell for restoration in the Solent. I am investigating the genetic implications surrounding the employment of locally adapted broodstock from disease-affected areas, for the hatchery production of native oyster seed for restoration purposes, monitoring the genetic diversity and potential disease-resistance during the whole production process. I am also investigating the mechanisms of competitive exclusion of C. fornicata, assessing the factors responsible for the inhibition of O. edulis natural recruitment in the Solent. During my most recent work experience, I've been running an aquarium based experiment to investigate the role of microplastics as pathogen vectors. All my previous experiences include projects related to the biodiversity and conservation fields of study.
A marine biologist with long history in oyster restoration and wild fisheries management. He developed and run a successful restoration project in Swansea Bay (Wales) which has reported early indications of spill over and recruitment. An advisor to UK Government agencies he has recently produced a number of advice documents and strategy reports. He is currently involved in restoration projects in Wales and Cornwall and has advised on a number of similar projects across the UK. Most recently he has developed a commercial oyster farm in Pembrokeshire which grows Ostrea edulis for restoration alongside a commercial crop of Crassostrea gigas to support the activity. The next step is development of spatting ponds to produce cost-effective native oyster seed.
