We have developed the technology and know how to farm blue mussels (Mytilis edulis) in a submerged, open ocean environment. Mussels are a healthy choice for the environment and consumers. Removed from the stress of near-shore waters, they grow thinner shells and larger meats. They feed on naturally occurring microscopic plants—free of additives—and are a lean, healthy protein source.
A commercial fisherman is using this technology to launch the first commercial offshore mussel farm in the U.S. At its current size of 12 lines, this farm can produce up to 150,000 pounds of mussels annually. Look for “Isle of Shoal Supremes” in seafood markets this winter!
