Greenshell™ Mussels belong to the Mytilidae family (Mussels).
A distinctive, dark green shell often blended with yellow, red, or brown streaks, especially in juveniles or those grown on ropes. Inside, the shell is iridescent with a green lip.
Mature males have creamy-white flesh, while female flesh is apricot-orange.
A green food source, New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels are often referenced as one of the best sustainable seafood options. As filter feeders they take all their nutrients from the seawater - nothing else is added. Every farm must operate in accordance with a resource consent that sets strict conditions determined and enforced by the local council. The consent is in effect a licence that tightly controls, among other things, the size of the farm, activities permitted and required monitoring. The Quota Management System does not apply to Greenshell™ Mussels; it is instead governed by provisions within the Resource Management Act and the Aquaculture Act.
One of the world's most successfully farmed mussels, they are found only in New Zealand. There are Greenshell™ Mussel farms in Marlborough Sounds, Coromandel, Golden Bay and Stewart Island where the shellfish are grown on lines suspended from ropes above the seabed.
