Mussels are a popular shellfish and with good reason
- they are farmed all around the world and are
sustainable! Mussels are farmed above the seafloor
on ropes in the ocean, avoiding habitat impacts.
Mussel production is not responsible for the same
levels of pollution as other uncontained aquaculture.
They filter food particles from the surrounding water
so do not need to be fed. Because of all these
factors, farmed mussels are given a green or “Best
Choice” ranking worldwide!
