Kinkawooka Mussels are grown in the Mediterranean style to be small, soft and sweet. Unlike big oceanic mussels from open water farming, the true quality of the Bay grown mussel lies in its eating quality. At the start of the season in June, Kinkawooka mussels are typically “petit” with 60-70 pieces per kilo and a meat to shell ratio of nearly 50 per cent. As the harvest year continues, the mussels grow in size to 30-35 pieces per kilo by March. The Quality Control system operated by Kinkawooka Mussels ensure that the meat to shell ratio remains high throughout the season, but importantly that there is always an excellent eating mussel.
