Mussel Transfer: Overwintering
The Piscataqua River has relatively high levels of nutrients for the mussels to extract and grow. They have grown so much that they needed to be reset at a lower density and placed offshore for their final grow out near Rye, New Hampshire. They will remain in this colder ocean water until early summer, then harvested and sold to local restaurants and at seafood markets around the Seacoast. (New Hampshire Sustainable Marine Fisheries)
