Mussel season prolongation (FOMUS) (39273)

Project Details


The overall objective of FOMUS is to increase the production of longline farmed mussels and ensure that a larger proportion of the increase in value of the primary product takes place in Danish companies.

This is achieved through the development of new production methods with a focus on changing production cycle in order to extend the harvest season. Sales only cover a short period of time from June to August and the goal is to extend the season for 6-8 months.

FOMUS covers the entire value chain and supports the development of sustainable mussel production.

This project is coordinated by DTU Aqua and funded by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark through the Green Development and Demonstration Program (GUDP).
