New Zealand Greenshell Mussels Whole
Greenshell™ mussels (Perna canaliculus) are native to New Zealand.
While they grow "wild" in waters around the coast, it is farmed Greenshell™ mussels which are today firmly established as New Zealand's second largest seafood export.
The shellfish is recognisable by its emerald green shell markings. The flesh is full and plump, and richly flavoured. The flesh of the female is a soft-blush apricot colour, and the male a pale creamy colour.
