Mussel cultures are located in one of the most important wetlands in Greece: The Axios - Loudias - Aliakmonas Estuaries National Park.
The large amounts of nutrients that the rivers enrich Thermaikos Gulf affects the growth rate of mussels. As a result we have larger mussels and quicker harvest.
The most important stage of mussel culture is keeping the mussel spat in socks (round tubular nets) untill it has reached the desirable growth.
When the mussels grow up and get out of the socks it is time to get them transferred in bigger socks.
The same as in 1st change but in a larger diameter sock
The last procedure is the cleaning, polishing, and separating the same growth of mussels in each bag.
