The Mediterranean mussels are reproducing naturally and are living attached to underwater stones along the Riviera of Conero.

The harvest of the mussels has to be limited in order to ensure their survival. Thus, the amount which is harvested has to be kept at maximum at the same rate as the mussels are reproducing. Moreover, the mussels have to be harvested in a certain underwater area and everything has to be traceable.

Since they close at the end of October and we arrived at the beginning of November, it wasn’t possible to photograph what they are doing.
