Abstract
    The 1978- 1980 results are given of a nursery experiment with hatchery-produced oysters, followed through the seabed stage. The construction of the Oosterschelde (Eastern Scheldt) dam provides amongst others protected seawater storage polders, where the principal differences between high- and low water level can be utilized to create continuous water flows which could be used in a nursery rearing-system. In combination with an energy project, based on generating electricity by turbines in the in- and outlets, this system would become more profitable. The design of this facility for 50 million Ostrea edulis spat and juveniles is the subject of a multi-disciplinary feasibility study in the MARIOS project (Mariculture Oosterschelde), established bythe Ministry of Transport and Public Works. and the Ministry of Agriculture and Fishery of The Netherlands.
