Harvest the mussels

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Workers harvest mussels from the lines hung beneath the floats while shags pirouette about hoping to catch a free feed. Waimana Marine, a small family-owned aquaculture company, has been growing mussel farms in the area for more than 30 years—much of it going into health products such as mussel powder to support joint health. The mussel spat comes all the way from Ninety Mile Beach in the Far North.
