Atlantic Canada is a leader in blue mussel production. These mussels are 100 percent natural, healthy, and delicious. They arrive fresh and "pot ready" at your door and are fully traceable from water to plate. One of the most sustainable seafoods, cultured blue mussels thrive in the hands of dedicated farmers in the pure and rich waters off Canada's east coast. No other shellfish is as easy to prepare or as versatile for enhancing a menu.
