View Mussel Monitoring Results
The Mussel Monitoring Program (MMP) is a service provided to cultured mussel growers and processors by the Department of Fisheries and Communities. Weekly data is collected during the ice-free season to provide the mussel industry with a variety of information to assist them in the management of their operations. The information collected includes: mussel spatfall prediction, mussel meat yield analysis, water temperature evaluation, the detection and estimation of the numbers of potentially toxic algae species, and the monitoring of predators and fouling organisms.
