Ikana Live New Zealand Greenshell Mussels 800g +/- (AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY FRI, SAT & MON ONLY)
Live Greenshell Mussels are one of New Zealand's great seafood experiences. Ikana’s mussels are cleaned and hand graded before being packed in Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) still alive for added assurance.
Before making it to your plate, Ikana Greenshell mussels are raised and nurtured in bays and coves around New Zealand’s pristine South Island coastline, from Stewart Island, Banks Peninsula and the Marlborough Sounds. The mussels are grown on lengths of natural fibre rope suspended from recyclable floats, allowing them to be nourished through the natural flow of water and the tides. Nature is allowed to go about its work unhindered while native fish, shellfish and seaweeds flourish below.
