In 2016, the average EU citizen consumed 24,33 kg of fisheries and aquaculture products, 763 grams more than in 2015. More than half of total per capita apparent consumption of farmed products is represented by salmon (2,08 kg) and mussels (1,01 kg), both stable compared with 2015.
Did you know that mussels are great filtrators? When cultivating mussels to eliminate Nitrogen and Phosphorus from polluted waters you want to take all mussels out of the water. With our harvesting machine you can harvest 30 ton mussels an hour!
We loved being invited by ANDA to participate in the bi-annual Halieutis Expo in Agadir, Morroco this year! We look forward to continue our collaborations with established contacts there. http://www.salonhalieutis.com/en/

Hjarnø Havbrug has recently established a large mussel farm with 100 smart units in connection to their aquaculture plans.

St. Andrews Biological Station in Canada has documented that mussels eat sea louse! In this video we clearly see that sea lice is being pumped straight into the mussel and digested inside the mussel. The video has very good pictures and support the idea of using mussels as a environmentally friendly and cost efficient way of reducing sea louse.
The farm was installed November 2014, 3 miles from Jesolo. A smart choice, for the economy and the environment. Watch the video from the delivery and installation made by SOCIETA’ AGRICOLA SMARTMUSSEL SRL.
