Caption: Mussel farming. A fisherman measuring a bucket of freshly harvested mussels. Blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) are farmed for food in temperate waters around the world. They are grown on ropes wrapped around wooden pilings, known as bouchots. These are erected in the seawater and provide a firm anchor for mussel growth. Photographed in Skye, Scotland, UK.
