Do you know how Mussels are grown?

The Galician Mussel cultivation process is divided into several stages:

Which are obtained from the most beaten rocks on the coast to collect the seed using scrapers.

The seed size is 1-2 cm. It is taken to the punt or boat and the “mexilla ropes” are made. The mussel is wrapped over the rope with the help of a fine biodegradable rayon net, giving the mussel enough time to lunge onto the rope.

After 4 to 6 months at sea, when the mussel reaches 4.5 or 5.5 cm, the mussel ropes are hoisted.

After about a year, the split mussel reaches commercial size. The ropes are removed from the water with the help of the crane and hoisted to the boat.

The traditional cultivation system in Galicia is the punt, a native design that has the best performance of those known, and that managed to turn Galicia into the European production leader.

The punt is a floating nursery made up of a framework of eucalyptus wood, more or less rectangular in shape, on which mussel ropes are tied. The punt is kept suspended by a system of floats.

Cultivation is, therefore, a completely natural process since the mussel efficiently takes advantage of the wealth of nutrients that Nature gave to the Galician Rías. And also an example of a sustainable activity because it is economically viable, socially equitable and environmentally friendly.
