The Veerse Meer is an inland water that was created by the Veerse Gatdam in 1961 as part of the Deltaplan. The Veerse Meer is the northeastern boundary of the peninsula Walcheren. In addition, the Veerse Meer separates the peninsula Zuid-Beveland and the "former island" Noord-Beveland
Before 1961, the Veerse Meer had a direct connection to the North Sea. With the construction of the Veerse Gatdam and Zandkreekdam in the east, the salinity of the water decreased sharply and the Gat became brackish, with all negative phenomena for life in and around the water (Wikipedia).
