Enjoy mussels any time of year

We farm our mussels in the waters of Boston Bay. This stretch of pristine South Australian coastline is the perfect place to grow mussels all year round.

As the conditions of the water change, so too does the shell size. At the start of the season in June, our mussels are typically ‘petite’ with 45-55 pieces per kilo and a meat to shell ratio of nearly 50 per cent. As the harvest year continues, the mussels grow in size to 30-40 pieces per kilo by March.

But rest assured that no matter the size of the shell, the mussel to meat ratio remains high. And the flavour profile is always perfect.

Eating mussels for the family meal became a habit that we all enjoyed

Busy? Aren’t we all! Since we came out of a lockdown it can feel like the days are moving faster and we have less time to do those things that are important to our health. Whilst the lockdowns were hard, we found we had more time and more reason to make time for our own wellbeing and that of our two children. Mussels for the family meal became the norm.

Black mussels and blue mussels are found on the menus of leading restaurants

Black mussels dominate the menus of the world’s leading restaurants. Native to the waters of Southern Africa, the Arctic Ocean, the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans the similarity of black mussels to blue mussels grown in the Southern Ocean of mainland Australia is beginning to gain a great deal of attention with many Australian chefs.
