Blueshell Mussels, Shetland: the UK’s leading rope-grown mussel farmer and supplier - January 2011
January 2011

Between Christmas and New Year we undertook one of our biggest harvests in one day with one boat, when we harvested about 30 tonnes of mussels in 8 hours! Normally in January sales take a bit of a downturn, however this year they begun and have also continued really well. During the month Jamie Oliver had a 5 minute slot on Channel 4 when he cooked up mussels in a cream sauce. "He also quoted that mussels were the ultimate sustainable food" http://www.channel4.com/programmes/jamies-fish-supper/episode-guide/series-1/episode-5 The following week our wholesale mussel sales increased between 20 - 30% compared with the previous week; Thanks Jamie!
