mussel_meal_303x148Many Baltic coastal areas suffer from eutrophication caused by nutrient emissions from human activities and operations. The natural phytoplankton stock uses the nutrients and acts as a catch crop on which blue mussels (Mytilus spp.) feed. When the mussels are harvested the nutrients are recycled from sea to land and can then be reused.
