Our rope-grown mussels come from the clean and nutrient-rich waters of St. Austell Bay on the Cornish coast. They have clean light shells and plump orange meats providing a distinct creamy flavour.
How many museels should you buy?
It really depends how hungry you are and what you're cooking, but we'd usually recommend 0.5kg per person, so this 2kg bag will feed 4 people.
Please note: if choosing the weekly or monthly price options, you cannot purchase other products at the same time. Please order other items separately afterwards, and we'll bring everything together.
*Live shellfish experience water loss once packed as their shells open - this means weights will vary

Live Cornish rope-grown mussels (2kg)
Our high-welfare, rope-grown mussels are from Westcountry Mussels based in St. Austell Bay in Cornwall. These mussels are grown in the highest-grade clean ocean waters, providing the very best quality mussels available. More details
Live mussels (without shells removed) should be stored in open containers in the fridge, loosely covered with clean, damp paper towels or cloths to prevent them from drying out. The optimum storage temperature is 4-8°C. Temperatures of 1°C or lower (especially freezing temperatures less than 0°C) can kill shellfish.
Do not store shellfish:
In airtight containers (boxes or bags) because they need to breathe
In water or directly on ice since the fresh water may drown them
Discard mussels, oysters, clams or any other live shellfish if their shells crack or break
Discard any shellfish if the shells are open and do not close when you tap them - live shellfish will "clam up" if their shells are tapped
