Mesh

Since 2010 we have combined our core organic mussel farm with the production of cotton mesh, intended for use with the more environmentally sustainable continuous rope system. This biodegradable material – also known as stocking or socking - is produced on-site at our Westport base, and is supplied to mussel operations across Europe and the UK.

The cotton mesh is used to temporarily support the mussel until its thread (byssus) attaches to the mussel rope. We produce continuous mussel cotton, which vastly increases on farm productivity. The pure cotton mesh is knitted from biodegradable 100% cotton thread and degrades after deployment without leaving any residue on the rope at harvest. 

We produce two main types of knitted mesh, both are suitable for the continuous rope cultivation method. The available yarn and mesh types are listed below.
