Placed in an exposed area at the northern inlet of the Kalmarsound between the Swedish East Coast and the Öland island, this farm uses a submerged net-farm production system which has been designed to withstand ice and o shore conditions. The area was chosen because of its good biological potential for mussel growth, few con icting uses and interests and the proximity to two larger harbours, making the farm easily accessible.
The estimated harvest in 2018 is 50 tonnes, corresponding to a nutrient uptake potential of 500 kg nitrogen (N) and 50 kg phospho- rous (P). The farm is owned and run by the company Bohus Havsbruk according to a contract with Kalmar municipality.
