Unlocking the Blue-print for Native Oyster Restoration in Europe
NORA-2019 is the international meeting of The Native Oyster Restoration Alliance NORA, Europe’s network that aims to reinforce and restore the native flat oyster (Ostrea edulis). This second international network meeting will be in Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh: a city that was, in the 19th century, a hub for the annual export of up to 30 million oysters. We strongly encourage all those who are part of the Native Oyster community, from scientists and funders through to those who are growers of this iconic species to attend this conference.
This year’s meeting is hosted by The Glenmorangie Company together with its DEEP partners Heriot-Watt University and The Marine Conservation Society and will be held at the prestigious Royal Society of Edinburgh in the heart of the city.
