Abstract

In this document, we present a synthesis of updated documented experience in the implementation of mussel cultivation for mitigating effects of eutrophication and parameter estimates to facilitate potential application in coastal water management plans. Included are descriptions of potential for nutrient extraction, ecological effects, and economics of mussel cultivation. The documentation presented is primarily gathered in the BONUS OPTIMUS project as well as in some nationally funded projects on mussel farming or mussel mitigation farming including project participants, while data from other projects is only included to a lesser degree.
