Control and transfer of juvenile mussels

In June and July the young mussels in different breeding Systems were controlled

- We were able to get several 100 mussels out of the sand troughs from 2015

- The survival and growth in the channels, directely supplied with Our water, were also OK

- All gravel cages from the outside rearing channel were checked and 5 new cages were installed.

The photos give some impressions of the size of the animals.
