Greenshell mussels

Perna canaliculus


Greenshell mussels (perna canaliculus) are unique to New Zealand. They are typically 10cm or longer at harvest, much larger than European blue mussels. Another identifying feature is the distinctive jade colour of their shells, which contributes to the visual appeal on the plate.

The plump meat and natural sweetness make for a healthy and delicious base for many seafood dishes. They can be found in pasta dishes, paella, chowders, or simply steamed in their own juices.

New Zealand mussels are grown in some of the purest waters in the world. As the seawater is naturally full of nutrients, there is no need to supplement their diet with additional feed. There is also no use of GMOs and chemical additives, making mussels one of the most sustainable and nutritious seafood choices.
