Simulations on the web

The WinShell model uses state-of-the-art equations in order to determine shellfish growth. There is currently no cost for usage. This site is part of the new Software-As-A-Service (SAAS) concept, where the application runs directly off the web.

Bivalve growth models

The production of cultivated shellfish such as mussels and oysters in estuaries and coastal systems is an important economic activity in many parts of the world. This website is designed for shellfish farmers and water managers, in order to determine how an animal will grow in a certain area, on the basis of food availability and environmental conditions. The intended scope of application is for shellfish farms in coastal and estuarine waters.

The Shellfish models used in WinShell have been calibrated and validated for various coastal systems. However, no model is universal. If you need help, feel free to email us.
