    In this study, the food conditions for mussels are estimated at different locations within the Oosterschelde. In 2014, 2015 and 2016, mussels with a uniform size were placed in baskets at the borders of commercial culture plots distributed over the Oosterschelde. Each month, a subsample was taken from each basket to measure growth (shell length and individual weight) of the mussels. The results show a variation in growth performance, both in shell length as in flesh weight, between the different locations. A model approach was used to translate the spatial differences in growth to spatial differences in food conditions. A Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) model was fitted to the data in order to trace-back the food conditions. During this fitting, the food correction factor (ψψ) was optimized. ψψ can be interpreted as an indication of the food conditions (algae concentration, quality, current velocity) at that specific location in comparison to the average food conditions in the whole Oosterschelde. The results show that there is a spatial, but also year-to-year variation in food conditions within the Oosterschelde. Locations with the best food conditions were Neeltje Jans N in 2015 and Hammen 9, Dortsman and Krabbenkreek in 2016. Growth of the mussels in the baskets in 2014 was lower than in 2015 and 2016. This is probably caused by the larger size of the mussels that were used in 2014 and the fact that the growth of mussels reduces with size. In contravention to the expectations, there was no clear pattern in growth conditions from the western part of the Oosterschelde to the eastern and northern part. For example, the growth of the mussels at the two locations in the northern part of the Oosterschelde (Krabbenkreek and Viane) where ralatively good compared to the other locations. In practice, however, mussel farmers use the culture plots in the northern part mainly for storage of seed and halfgrown mussels. Possibly the mussels in the baskets perform better in this area than on the bottom culture plots. The DEB model is a good tool to trace-back the food conditions from the measured growth data. The parameters for blue mussel, that is used for the DEB model should be updated. The parameters are presently based on historical data, whereas new data are available.

    In verband met de overschrijding van de concentratie tetrodotoxine (TTX) in het schelpdiervlees van oesters en mosselen in de Kom van de Oosterschelde (inclusief de verwaterpercelen) is dit gebied eind juni 2016, evenals de noordelijke tak van de Oosterschelde, gesloten voor schelpdierproductie en als verwatergebied. Om te onderzoeken of schone mosselen tijdens het verwateren in verwatercontainers TTX kunnen accumuleren zijn schone mosselen (zonder TTX) gedurende een periode van ruim 2 weken verwaterd met verswater uit de Pijp van Bliek. Om de dag is een monster verzameld en geanalyseerd op de aanwezigheid van TTX. In alle gevallen waren de gehaltes aan TTX beneden de detectielimiet (LOD) en was er dus geen sprake van accumulatie van TTX tijdens het verwateren met het water uit de verswaterleiding.

    Zeeuwse aquacultuurondernemers zijn in januari 2013 vier dagen naar de regio Cadiz en Huelva in Spanje afgereisd om kennis te maken met de aquacultuuractiviteiten en te leren van de ervaringen daar. Deze studiereis is georganiseerd in het kader van het inmiddels afgeronde RAAK Internationaal project 'Het zoute goud', waarvan HZ University of Applied Sciences penvoerder was. De studiereis naar Spanje vormde samen met een slotsymposium de afsluiting van dit project.

    As aquaculture production expands, we must avoid mistakes made during increasing intensification of agriculture. Understanding environmental impacts and measures to mitigate them is important for designing responsible aquaculture production systems. There are four realistic goals that can make future aquaculture operations more sustainable and productive: (1) improvement of management practices to create more efficient and diverse systems at every production level; (2) emphasis on local decisionmaking, human capacity development, and collective action to generate productive aquaculture systems that fit into societal constraints and demands; (3) development of risk management efforts for all systems that reduce disease problems, eliminate antibiotic and drug abuse, and prevent exotic organism introduction into local waters; and (4) creation of systems to better identify more sustainably grown aquaculture products in the market and promote them to individual consumers. By 2050, seafood will be predominantly sourced through aquaculture, including not only finfish and invertebrates but also seaweeds.

    Anno 2012 bestaan ze in de verbeelding, op papier en als experiment: Multifunctionele platforms op zee of Multi Use Platforms on Sea (MUPS), waarop maritieme activiteiten met elkaar zijn geclusterd. De kern van het concept is om op een locatie op zee meerdere economische activiteiten te combineren en wel zo dat het ecosysteem en de mens er optimaal van kunnen profiteren zonder elkaar wederzijds te belemmeren.
    An ecosystem-based approach and management framework for the integrated evaluation of bivalve aquaculture impacts

    An ecosystem-based approach to bivalve aquaculture management is a strategy for the integration of aquaculture within the wider ecosystem, including human aspects, in such a way that it promotes sustainable development, equity, and resilience of ecosystems. Given the linkage between social and ecological systems, marine regulators require an ecosystem-based decision framework that structures and integrates the relationships between these systems and facilitates communication of aquaculture–environment interactions and policy-related developments and decisions. The Drivers-Pressures-State Change-Impact-Response (DPSIR) management framework incorporates the connectivity between human and ecological issues and would permit available performance indicators to be identified and organized in a manner that facilitates different regulatory needs. Suitable performance indicators and modeling approaches, which are used to assess DPSIR framework components, are reviewed with a focus on the key environmental issues associated with bivalve farming. Indicator selection criteria are provided to facilitate constraining the number of indicators within the management framework. It is recommended that an ecosystem-based approach for bivalve aquaculture be based on a tiered indicator monitoring system that is structured on the principle that increased environmental risk requires increased monitoring effort. More than 1 threshold for each indicator would permit implementation of predetermined impact prevention and mitigation measures prior to reaching an unacceptable ecological state. We provide an example of a tiered monitoring program that would communicate knowledge to decision-makers on ecosystem State Change and Impact components of the DPSIR framework.
