  Business Summary   
  A rare opportunity to acquire a significant mussel farming location, ideally suited for Mussel Farming, for which it has full planning consent. It could easily be used for alternative purposes and has good transport links. The area has previously been used for farming mussels very successfully and other shellfish and is a valuable asset that should continue to appreciate whilst being cash generative.

Key Opportunities:

The size of the site allows for large scale operations. Mussels take an average of 3 years to mature from wild spat, although part grown mussels can be husbanded to maturity in the same season to generate cash.

Mussels typically retail for around £5,000 per tonne. A mix of wholesale and retail could easily generate £750,000 per annum based at a price mix of £1,500 per tonne. The nature of the opportunity means that it can be managed locally or remotely.


The mussel farm is leasehold and has full planning consent for 38 x 263 metre longlines.

Financial profile:
All financial discussions will take place directly between the Vendor and all interested parties under the auspices of Turner Butler.

The Farm doesn’t currently generate any revenue due to the ill health of the current owner.
