The Flavour is in the Growing
Kelly Mussels are farmed mussels – which means we purchase them from mussel farmers. They use the ‘long line’ method of growing, where the shellfish are placed on ropes that remain suspended in the water, from a long line composed of buoys. They are also grown on ‘mussel rafts’: solid structures from which the mussels hang in the water. This provides the perfect environment for these beauties. Like oysters, mussels are filter feeds – feeding on plankton present in the water. They also filter large volumes of water very efficiently – making them a treasure for the ocean.
