This method of culture is generally used throughout the rearing process (from 6 months to 2 years).
This consists of mussels reared on 4 to 6-metre vertical stakes, usually made of oak, partially or totally uncovered at low tide.
Planted in lines, they can be harvested mechanically using detachers.
This still widely used technique was discovered accidentally by an Irishman in the Baie de l'Aiguillon, who was trying to capture birds in a net stretched between two stakes set in the sea. The stakes became covered in mussels, which put on weight very quickly, so he increased the number of stakes, placed them closer together and linked them with racks, naming the idea "boat-choat". And thus rearing on bouchots (stakes) was born!"
The mussels are delicious!

interesting picture an dinformation, especially as I live beside the Solway with its mud flats: although it is cockle fishing rather than mussle here.A nicley balanced composition and I like the muted colour palette.
