Oyster hatchery (39313 & 39085 & 39233)

Project Details


Hatchery production of European oyster spat (Ostrea edulis) in a land-based hatchery facility and feasibility study with analysis of the technological and economic conditions for the establishment of a new large scale shellfish hatchery with multiple functions.
The aim is to optimize hatchery processes in order to get stable output at all stages from mother to spat. It is a specific object to develop techniques to insure stable survival in the settling phase, including working with different feed concentrations and compositions.

A particular aim is also to maintain hatchery knowledge at Danish Shellfish Centre, DTU Aqua for research purpose and dissemination centre as well as to ensure the base for the establishment of a real full-scale hatchery with capacity for both research/development and production in partnership with private companies. Moreover produces spat for other projects, restoration and further breeding at Danish Shellfish Centre.

This project is coordinated by DTU Aqua and is funded by the fund “Fonden Limfjordens Skaldyrcenter”.
