In a large field experiment we investigated the possibility of increasing transplantation success by stimulating the formation of an aggregated spatial configuration in mussels, thereby reducing hydrologically induced dislodgment and the risks of predation. For this we applied engineering measures in the form of fences that trapped wave dislodged mussels.
