    Abstract

    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, Netherlands, Denmark, France and New Zealand. In 2012, 1.829 million tonnes of mussels were produced worldwide valued at 2.053 billion US Dollars (FAO). The Indian mussel production is relatively small and the production is around 10,000 tonnes for the past few years.
