Black Mussels: (Mytilus edilis), also known as the common mussel, is a medium-sized edible marine bivalve mollusc in the familyMytilidae, the mussels. Blue mussels are subject to commercial use and intensive aquaculture. Systematically blue mussels consist of a group of (at least) three closely related taxa of mussels, known as the Mytilus edulis complex. Collectively they occupy both coasts of the North Atlantic (including the Mediterranean) and of the North Pacific in temperate to polar waters, as well as coasts of similar nature in the Southern Hemisphere. The distribution of the component taxa has been recently modified as a result of human activity (invasive species). The taxa can hybridise with each other, if present at the same locality.

We bring an authentic experience for everyone.
