*** Yerseke ***

Yerseke is the Dutch capital city of mussels and oysters.

It is a fishing port located on the southern shore of the Eastern Schelde (Oosterschelde), one of the large arms of the estuary of the river Schelde.

The city has one of his ports dedicated to the mosselkotters (mussel cutters), the boats used for mussel fishing.

Yerseke has the only mussel auction room in Europe and a museum dedicated to the history of mussel, oyster, lobster, shell and sea shell fishing in Zeeland.

Yerseke also rears lobsters and musselbeer.
