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.
