Video: Installing the submerged mussel farm off the Kurzeme coast

Watch this underwater footage of how the fundaments and ropes for the submerged Baltic Blue Growth mussel farm are installed. Placed in the open waters outside the Kurzeme coast in Latvia, the farm will have to withstand rapid water circulation and rough weather conditions. Therefore, the farm is submerged to a depth of about five metres.

The special focus of this farm is to compare the costs and benefits of an open water farm to those with a more sheltered location. Read more about it here.

More information about the farm in Latvian can be found in the following press articles:
