Mussels are an excellent addition to many dishes, and they will take on the character of the other ingredients they're combined with
Saltspring Island, British Columbia is one of the many jewel-like islands that sparkle in the Strait of Georgia. It was here, in 1996, that we founded Island Sea Farms Inc. and began growing Saltspring Island Mussels. Although these clean rich island waters have produced world class shellfish for almost a century, British Columbia has never had a mussel farming industry. Through our pioneering hatchery and sustainable farming techniques, we are proud to be the first successful mussel farm in BC. We believe you will find our Saltspring Island Mussels plump, consistently sweet and delicately flavoured.
It is our goal to grow the world's best mussel while caring passionately about the environment, our employees and island communities where we farm.
