Abstract For the recovery of flat oyster beds, knowledge is required of the conditions under which the active restoration of this species in the North Sea can be successfully implemented. This is the subject of the current feasibility study. Living flat oysters have occasionally been found in wind farms. Flat oyster growth has also been demonstrated experimentally in areas where German wind farm are planned. Furthermore, the flat oyster population in the Delta area shows signs of recovery. This all shows that the proper environmental conditions for flat oyster restoration exist in the North Sea.
