Mussel farming

  • The common name mussel is used for members of several families of clams or bivalvia mollusca, from saltwater and freshwater habitats.
  • Mussels feed by filtrating particles out of the water.
  • The potential ecological and environmental benefits of mussel farming to improve coastal water quality have been scientifically known for years.
  • Only recently has mussel farming been suggested as an operational tool for society to recycle nutrients from coastal waters back to land.
