Sea and sustainability
MUSSELS, NATURE'S PURIFIERS.
The Kyoto Protocol has given an economic value to the carbon production of molluscs by quantifying it with Carbon Credits, recognising that the action of mussels can transform 1 tonne of carbon dioxide into 3 tonnes of shells. By eliminating carbon dioxide from water, mussels make the marine environment in which they are found even more liveable for other species, effectively reducing pollution.
A COMPLETELY NATURAL SYSTEM.
As we know, mussels live and grow by filtering sea water and retaining the micro-organisms they find there. They cannot be fed in any other way.
This means that, unlike other types of marine farms, in mussel nurseries there is no dispersal of feed, medication or other substances that are incompatible with the marine environment.
BREEDING MANAGEMENT: 6,000 CHECKS PER YEAR AND CONTINUAL CLEANING OF THE SEABED.
The analysis and control system is one of our flagships. We carry out over 6,000 checks a year, which allows us to act promptly when anomalies are found.
