Abstract This report presents the results of a short survey of flat oysters (Ostrea edulis) in the Western Wadden Sea. Ten sites were visited and flat oysters were found on nine locations in the Eijerlandse gat. Empty cockleshells and live and dead Pacific oysters provided the main settlement substrate. The presence of larvae was detected in water samples by microscopic inspection and DNA analysis at several locations in the Eijerlandse gat. The results show that flat oysters have returned to the Wadden Sea after its extinction in the last century, but still occurs at low densities.
