ABOUT Mussels


Mussels are harvested from the cold, clean and pristine waters along the coast of the province and shipped all over the world. Mussels are bivalves, meaning they have two hinged shells. Because they are native to Atlantic Canada, they grow naturally in the wild. Mussel farming involves collecting mussel seed and setting it out at the appropriate grow out density, keeping it properly floated during 3/4 of the year and submerged below the ice in the winter.


Nova Scotia mussel processing facilities are registered to meet international quality assurance standards, ensuring you receive a healthy, safe, and high-quality product.
