What guidance is available for native oyster restoration?

NatureScot and Marine Scotland are developing Scotland-specific native oyster guidance, which will aim to provide advice to applicants and ongoing schemes already in development, including both specific on-site guidance as well as wider geographic considerations such as the collection of broodstock for hatcheries.
