The native European oyster is considered a keystone species in the marine ecosystem with special ecological function in its typical species community and habitat. But oyster stocks of Ostrea edulis are described as highly endangered throughout Europe. Feasibility studies and restoration experiments have shown that rehabilitation measures are possible. Accordingly, several restoration projects are under way – also in Germany - and may be fostered by knowledge exchange and network collaboration.

In this context, the department “Marine Nature Conservation” of the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN), Isle of Vilm, is happy to announce the kick-off workshop:

Native oyster restoration in Europe -
current activities and future perspectives

The meeting aims at building a network of oyster restoration experts and institutions around Europe with input from experiences and knowledge exchange around the world and will be held in Berlin from 01 - 03 November 2017. Please save the date in your calendar and feel free to inform interested colleagues.

At this website, you will find regularly updated information and participation details and when and how to sign in for attendance.
