Abstract In the Waddensea, musselbed distribution and abundance has decreased. Management is aiming at increase of area of beds. Fisheries have been regulated. Mussel beds are slowly recovering, and localities where recovery occurs can be predicted reasonably well. Active restoration of beds has not been necessary, as long as newly formed beds are protected from fisheries. Potential suitable sites should be protected from bottom-disturbing activities which might influence the substrate for spatfall such as cockle beds and tube-building polycheates.
