Article
European oyster (Ostrea edulis) restoration often requires the timely deployment of shell habitat for larval settlement. To inform this increasingly popular process, the present study investigated temporal and spatial abundance patterns of O. edulis larvae in a rare commercial fishery (Loch Ryan, Scotland, UK). Patterns in larval abundance were ana...

Understanding larval duration and hence dispersal potential of the European oyster Ostrea edulis is crucial to inform restoration strategies. Laval duration has an obligatory period of maturity to pediveliger (when larvae are ready to settle), but also an unknown period until metamorphosis is triggered by a settlement cue. The extent to which larva...

This European Native Oyster Habitat Restoration Handbook aims to provide foundational and practical guidance on the restoration and conservation of native oysters (Ostrea edulis) and native oyster habitat across the UK and Ireland. The guidance outlined throughout the Handbook is also of relevance to projects across the native oyster’s biogeographi...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter describes the techniques that can be implemented to achieve restoration success across Europe, as well as some that are used for other species but are yet to be fully developed for the European native oyster. A combination of these techniques may be required to maximise restoration success and outreach or engagement in the project. Whi...

• Benthic marine invertebrates, such as oysters, rely on larval recruitment for their populations to persist. This can be by self‐recruitment to the natal population or recruitment from geographically distant populations. • Marine invertebrate larvae are increasingly understood to influence their dispersal through vertical migrations, based on a co...

The Dornoch Environmental Enhancement Project (DEEP) seeks to restore native European oysters (Ostrea edulis) to the Dornoch Firth and requires four million oysters to achieve its goal. The entire annual UK aquaculture supply of native oysters is, at present, incapable of delivering this requirement. This project works with the Loch Ryan Oyster Fis...

Review oyster larval seasonality and behaviour to: • Optimise clutch deployment • Increase available habitat • Increase oyster population • Enable sustainable supply to restoration project in the Dornoch Firth, Scotland
Article
Full-text available
The European oyster Ostrea edulis is a keystone species that is internationally recognised as 'threatened and declining' in the NE Atlantic by OSPAR and several nations have consequently adopted strategies for its conservation and restoration. Understanding the settlement behaviour of O. edulis larvae is crucial to inform these strategies. We compa...

Biological invasions have become major players in the current biodiversity crisis, but realistic tools to predict which species will establish successful populations are still unavailable. Here we present a novel approach that requires only a morphometric characterisation of the species. Using fish invasions of the Mediterranean, we show that the a...
