Danish Shellfish Center's most popular tour - The Grand Tour, begins at the "maternity ward" (the fish hatcheries). Here the lobster and oysters are hatched and it is here where they grow claws and shell. Here you will see the oyster larvae swim and you will get the opportunity to touch and hold the lobsters discarded "suit".
Efficient breeding of lobsters and oysters contain many puzzles. Hear how we conduct research to solve them. In the “growth hall” we perform a variety of experiments with numerous animals including crab, shrimps, seaweed, oysters, clams, etc. Here you will hear about the latest research and what they might lead to. We have a taste of exciting foods from the fjord.
Eventually we are going to sail out on the fjord and see the breeding facilities with mussels in net. Along the way, you will learn why the Limfjord has the world's best environment for shellfish. It will be a trip with sea spray, fresh air - and perhaps and the most adventurous can sample a raw clam.
Practical information: bring clothes and shoes to suit the weather and can withstand being a bit wet.
