Sustainable by definition is "the ability to endure".
As aquaculture is the planting, managing and harvesting of aquatic plants and animals, it is by definition sustainable. We are only removing from the ocean what we have put in.
Mussel farming requires clean water because the mussels feed by filtering sea water. When is comes to mussels they really are what they eat, making them a wonderful monitor or indicator of the ocean's health and well being. They also have the added value of removing carbon dioxide from the ocean for shell formation.
Mussel farming is endorsed by environmental groups such as The Audubon Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch and Eco-Fish.
