An Afternoon on the Mussel Farm.
Visit Killary Fjord Shellfish mussel farm on the magnificent Fjord and find out all you ever wanted to know about mussel farming from Simon who has been growing mussels on the Fjord for the past thirty years and his team. Put on a life jacket and step on board the workboat, see what it takes to be a mussel farmer.
Watch as the mussels are hauled on board and harvested, graded and cleaned. Learn the life cycle of the humble mussel and the many stages it goes through before it reaches your plate.
Experience the Fjord from a unique position on board the workboat, feel the salt on your face as you return to the shore and the briny air in your nostrils. Back on terra firma you now get to enjoy your own shucked oyster and steaming bowl of shellfish in the boathouse.
