Oesterseizoen Monday officially started

The oesterseizoen, which runs from september to april, Monday officially kicked off by the Dutch Oestervereniging.

Every year, according to the Oestervereniging approximately 1 million Zeeuwse flat oysters raised between 20 and 35 million of Zeeland curve oysters.

On average, the oysters good for a turnover of 5 million euro. The expectation is that the supply of oysters in the coming years will decrease.

This is due to the combined effect of the, by the way, for people harmless, oesterherpesvirus and the oesterboorder, that great mortality under the curve oysters cause.


The ministry of Economic Affairs and the province of Zealand try in cooperation with the breeders, the oestersterfte to reduce. This struck the parties earlier this year, the hands.

The first new oysters from the Grevelingen dragged, after which the first vessel in the port of Bruinisse, the netherlands is auctioned. The proceeds thereof are just the same as last year for the Princess Máxima Centre in Utrecht.
