Six farms in different parts of the Baltic Sea form the
basis for the project. The farms have been
selected with the aim of covering different environmental conditions and different cultivation techniques.
The mussel farm in the sheltered Swedish Sankt Anna archipelago is the first full scale long line farm at the Swedish East coast.
The Kalmarsund farm is located in an exposed area of the Kalmarsound. The estimated harvest for this farm in 2018 in 50 tonnes.
The existing mussel farm in the Musholm Bay has been extended with different mesh-size substrates to test maximum nutrient uptake.
The Baltic Blue Growth mussel farm in the Kiel Bay
is an extension to the existing farm producing mussel for human consumption.
The Baltic Blue Growth farm in Latvia is located in the open waters to compare costs and benefits with
existing farms in sheltered sites in other parts of the Baltic Sea Region.
