Bangs Island Mussels

Bangs Island Mussels are hand-raised in the cool, clean waters of Casco Bay. The mussels are cultivated responsibly in two locations on the Maine coast, Clapboard Island and Bangs Island.  Mussels are highly effective filter feeders that improve the water quality around them simply by living and growing. 

The farms are a series of rafts, each with hundreds of specially designed "droppers" that provide a safe habitat for mussels to grow. Bangs Island Mussels start their lives as wild juvenile mussel seed that is nurtured in the protection of the rafts until they are ready to harvest. Once the mussels are onto the ropes suspended above the ocean floor, they spend their entire life in the water column. Positioned away from sandy, silty tidal zones, they mature rapidly and accumulate almost no grit on their way to your kitchen.

The Bangs Island Mussels fleet runs on biodiesel, and they maintain the highest environmental standards in every aspect of our business.
Bangs Island Mussels are sweet, plump and the most tender mussels with a great meat-to-shell ratio.
