Food from the Eastern Scheldt

The Eastern Scheldt not only offers also a rich dish to birds, we can also enjoy it ourselves! Oysters, mussels and periwinkles are literally there for the taking. In order to give the birds the peace and space to enjoy their own dish you’re not allowed to collect everywhere.


Per day, no more than 10 kg per person oysters, mussels and periwinkles may be collected for personal use.


Of course you have to make sure that you don't disturb nature so that birds also have the time to get their meals together.


Please note, it is not allowed to all other types of shellfish and all types of crustaceans such as crabs to pick it up.
