  • The common name mussel is used for members of several families of clams or bivalvia mollusca, from saltwater and freshwater habitats.
  • These groups have in common a shell whose outline is elongated and asymmetrical compared with other edible clams, which are often more or less rounded or oval.
  • Mussel farming has a long history that dates back to the thirteenth century.
  • Mussels are farmed in many areas of the world with the most common species cultured being the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis.
  • The main producers of mussels are countries such as China, Korea, Spain, The Netherlands, Denmark, France and New Zealand.
  • Thirteen species of native mussels occur within Western Australia, but these are all small species with low or no market value.
  • The Western Australian commercial mussel industry is based on the farming of the blue mussel Mytilus edulis although the actual identification of the species is a matter of scientific debate.
  • Recent evidence suggests that it is in fact the European mussel species, Mytilus galloprovincialis.
  • In the absence of a definitive answer to the taxonomic question, the name M. edulis is used here to be consistent with the Department of Fisheries legislation.
  • The origins of the blue mussel in Australia are unknown.
  • While it is possible the species occurs naturally in Australian waters, it is also possible that it came to this country on the hulls of early sailing ships when the continent was colonised by Europeans.
  • In either event, the species has occurred along the coastline of southern Australia for a considerable period of time.
