Bottom-culture mussels

Bottom-culture mussels from DZM

Mytilus edulis is the name of a marine mollusk that enjoys immense popularity. The Zealand bottom culture mussel is world famous for its specific taste, firm bite and structure. Zeeland bottom culture mussels are farmed in areas with the correct soil conditions and in relatively shallow water, so that the mussels are assured of sufficient food. The Mussel shell contains delicious tender mussel meat, the taste of which you will certainly appreciate. As a mussel farmer, we set high standards for our quality.
