Summary New shellfish policy in the Netherlands

In 2004, the Shellfish Fisheries Policy Decree “Room for a saline harvest” was drawn up for the period 2005-2020. That policy period has ended and the shellfish sector has also changed in recent years. In addition, several government and sector policy documents have been published in recent years that have an effect on shellfish policy. An update of the shellfish policy is therefore necessary and is planned for 2022. This update also relates to clarification of the innovation and experimentation policy and the trajectory after an experiment. In this lecture I will discuss these changes and identify the main features of the updated shellfish policy.
