New Zealand is the only country where Greenshell™ Mussels naturally occur. They are farmed in six main growing regions using a long-line rope system and take 12-18 months to grow to market size.
New Zealand operates one of the strictest quality assurance programs for shellfish in the world. Water quality is rigorously and constantly monitored, and no shellfish can be harvested from the farms until both the water testing, the product testing and environmental monitoring are declared safe.
Core to the industry is a commitment to sustainable practices. The practice of Aquaculture is considered to be one of the worlds most sustainable methods of food production.
Greenshell™ Mussels are high in protein, low in fat and provide a source of Omega 3s. They are also a rich source of selenium, iron, VitaminB12 and iodine and a good source of magnesium and calcium. Nutracuetical products derived from Greenshell™ Mussels are commonly associated with supporting joint mobility.
