    658 Pacific Oyster Protocol - Technical Report

    The potential impact of wild Pacific oysters on local biodiversity is being raised as an issue that has to be considered in environmental assessments of both new farms and changes to practices by existing farms where they occur in wildlife protected areas. A FIFG-funded project has been carried out by Seafish which focuses on Pacific oyster cultivation in and around European Marine Sites. Working closely with industry and statutory nature conservation agencies, relevant background information was collated (Development of a Pacific oyster aquaculture protocol for the UK - Technical Report and a protocol proposed (Development of a Pacific oyster aquaculture protocol for the UK - Protocol template. Where there could be an impact on protected wildlife and/or marine habitats, husbandry and management techniques have been proposed to mitigate or eliminate any potential impacts. The project complements the ‘Memorandum of Understanding for Appropriate Assessments in European Marine Sites’ that was agreed between the SAGB and Natural England.

    FS23-0209 Feb 2009 Pacific oyster aquaculture – developing a protocol

    Naturally settled (wild) Pacific oysters are being found in our coastal waters, especially in the south east and along the south coast of England. This is causing concern from environmental organisations particularly where the natural spatfalls have occurred in Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). When setting up new businesses, when expanding existing businesses and when renewing permissions to cultivate Pacific oysters in MPAs, an Appropriate Assessment may have to be carried out. The information in this Fact sheet should help anyone involved in such a process and provide them with a link to additional information.
