Taking mussel farming to another level

Investors are now in negotiation with Northlight Seafood Investors are now in negotiation with Northlight Seafood

Northlight Seafood is ready to start production and embark on its ambitious project after years of research.

With a total European production of just below 600,000 tonnes, Northlight Seafood is aiming for a total production of 100,000 tonnes per annum. Although it is estimated that the farming capacity of the area is up to ten times this quantity.

When the target is reached, it will make Iceland the second largest producer of blue mussel in Europe.

Many investors are now in negotiation with Northlight Seafood to be part of this project and it is estimated that the production will start in 2017.

The blue mussel is a relatively unknown source of food in many countries, the company believes this is what makes its potential so large.

Mussels are a low fat low calorie food and an excellent source of sodium (243mg), selenium (76 mcg), vitamin B12 (20 mcg), zinc (2.3 mg), and foliate (64 mcg), and as such, its consumption may be recommended.
