Expected Outcomes

To solve seasonal problems surrounding the production of Pecten maximus and Ostrea edulis spat, SETTLE will identify environmental factors leading to successful off-season broodstock conditioning (manipulation with feed, light and temperature), reveal effects of conditioning and other biological processes on settlement and optimise existing culture methods and technology. Expected outcomes are:

  1. Procedure for conditioning oyster broodstock in winter
  2. Culture technique for maximized settlement of flat oyster
  3. Procedure for conditioning scallop broodstock in winter
  4. Culture technique for maximized settlement of scallop
