Shellfish Aquaculture

Some 50 per cent of Scotland's farmed mussels are produced in Shetland, and to add to the customers' choice, smoked mussels are also being produced.

Two oyster species are grown from seed in Shetland - the Pacific and the Common European flat oyster. The Pacific is slower growing in Shetland's colder waters but the flesh is firm and tastier than those grown in tropical climates. Grown either in baskets, in bags fastened onto trestles, or on the sea bed on racks, oysters are available by mail order and are dispatched and delivered in peak condition.

Scallops and queen scallops are farmed in Shetland's cool, clear waters and are available all year round, dispatched either live in the shell or shelled. New developments to add value to the raw scallop are planned for the future.
