Permission to install the OOS Cees Leenaars mussel farm in the North Sea
Offshore company OOS has been given permission to install a mussel farm within the Borssele wind farm: first step for mussel cultivation in the North Sea.
Cultivating mussels in wind farm Borssele 3: Offshore company OOS International in Serooskerke is allowed to start a mussel farm between the wind turbines.
A new branch of the company, OOS SMF, recently received a permit from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. This makes the Zeeland offshore company the first to be allowed to undertake fishing activities within an offshore wind farm. However, OOS will not do this completely on its own. It leaves the cultivation of hanging culture mussels to a group of Zeeland mussel farmers.
