If there is a sea food that is very consumed by many people in our country, that is without a doubt the mussel , a natural and healthy product with a suggestive and delicious flavor.
The majority of its cultivation is done by the system of rafts, which consist of platforms attached to the bottom of the sea, from which hang ropes to which the mussel seed adheres, by means of meshes.
Soon, these meshes fall apart, leaving the mussel free, which has already made the biso with which it is attached to the rope.

Of course, they will not reach commercial size until after approximately one year.
