Sea Products New Zealand
Greenshell™ Mussels

Sea Products sources Greenshell™ Mussels from leases at 6 different growing areas in the Coromandel Peninsula and Waiheke Island.

We supply live and frozen wholeshell mussels to various international and domestic markets.

Sea Products Mussels Ltd processes mussels to packaged frozen halfshell for export in a new factory adjacent to Sea Products plant in Auckland.

We have a very consistent supply from a variety of sources. The quality of our Greenshell™ Mussels is exceptional.

Growing Areas

We have mussel growing locations where the sheltered waters and remote locations of the farms allow the mussels to be harvested with excellent condition of the meat and clean cosmetic appearance. The mussels are grown on leases at Waiheke Island, Kopake Island and Rabbit Island in Coromandel have a reputation for being the highest quality mussels in New Zealand. This is particularly important for us, as currently our main supply is for wholeshell 'live' markets where the visual appearance of the Mussels is of paramount importance.
