Abstract On behalf of the Office of Research and Risk Assessments (BuRO) of the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safey Authority (NVWA), IMARES conducted a species inventory in the Oyster basins in Yerseke and the surrounding area in the Eastern Scheldt, known to be subject to shellfish related activities. This inventory that was performed in September/October 2013 revealed 21 macro invertebrate species that are regarded as alien species. Five of these are assumed not to be present in the Wadden Sea and one species was discovered there once very recently. For all six alien species an assessment was performed to define the potential risk that they will reach the Wadden Sea and affect the local native ecosystem, which is described in this report.
