dc.description.abstractThe Italian territory is covered of approximately 384,000 ha of coastal lagoons and these could represent potential location for Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas (Thunberg, 1793) farming. Approximately 10,000 ha of the coastal Italian lagoons are located in the Sardinian region, these are currently not utilized for shellfish farming, and present suitable environmental conditions that allow for good growth rates and optimal market quality for Pacific oysters farming. Therefore, these lagoons can become potential farming sites to increase this industry in the Italian territory, where the demand for this shellfish species cannot be met by domestic production alone. The aim of this PhD study was to enhance Pacific oyster farming in Mediterranean coastal lagoons taking into account local aquaculture industry’s ambitions and challenges, therefore different Pacific oyster culture aspects were investigated. To achieve the goals of this PhD study, novel farming tools and their benefits to Pacific oyster farming were investigated. Moreover, the validation of ShellSIM® growth model in a new environment was carried out, providing a new validated tool to farmers and stakeholders to monitor oysters’ performances and estimate productivity in local waters. Finally, a site selection methodology was developed to identify suitable sites for Pacific oyster farming, and potential risks to consumers linked to microplastics pollution in coastal areas and uptake in Pacific oyster were investigated. Taken together, the results of this PhD study provide new insight on ways to improve C. gigas sustainable aquaculture industry in Mediterranean coastal lagoons, with particular focus on the Italian territory.en_GB
