Menai Strait Mussels
by Gary Wright
Menai Straits at Menai Bridge Anglesey
I'm surprised you haven't mentioned James Wilson of DeepDock Mussels' appearance on BBC's "Our Food".
It was a a great spot and I'm shocked to learn that UK retailers haven't jumped to buy his mussels??
It was a great segment.
I've had the pleasure of meeting James Wilson and find him to be an eminently sensible and decent chap.
Like you, I am delighted by his success and find the mussel farming and harvesting a marvellous project and business enterprise.
All products succeed because of advertising and the BBC programme is a great help.
I'm not sure if any of his products are sold locally, though.
If so, let me know and I'll highlight it.
P.S. I used to be part of the Welsh Water Marine Survey Team and carried out regular EC Directive Mussel Bed surveys along the Menai Staits for five years.
Some of the scariest moments of my life were on the Menai Straits in Winter in a little Shetland cruiser or Zodiac. Before the days of Health and Safety.
