The production process has its specific seasonality.
The production cycle generally begins, between March and May, with the harvest of the seed from our structures.
The picked seed is inserted inside special socks of net, subsequently is hung in a row. Our method of breeding is called longline system.
Around the month of August there is a process called thinning, where the mussels are selected and divided into more ropes. For this work, a declumping line for mussels is used.
Based on the reached sizes, the mussels are inserted again in stockings of different diameters, waiting for the harvest. The mussels are picked up and sold when the attainment of the commercial size is complete.
