Growing the UK’s first large scale rope cultured mussel farm

Welcome to Offshore Shellfish Ltd Proud to be BAP Certified

Offshore Shellfish Ltd is building the UK’s largest offshore, rope cultured mussel farm, in Lyme Bay, Devon, using specially designed technology to grow the blue mussel Mytilus edulis. Once completed, the development will also be the largest of its type in European waters.

 Our aim is to produce a sustainable source of high quality seafood in the open sea, as evidenced by our Best Aquaculture Practice (BAP) certification.

We are a family run business with over 30 years’ experience in mussel farming. We work in harmony with the natural environment, and regularly monitor the impact of our activities, to ensure we maintain high standards.

Our mussels are appreciated by customers in the UK and Europe.
