Mussel Farming in Shetland

On the Saturday we were taken out to see mussel farming by Thelma and Jordy.

It was a lovely sunny morning and the sea was calm.......and David and I were fascinated to see and learn how mussels are being farmed in the sea. With the recession at the moment there is not as much market for mussels and so many of the 'farmers' are keeping them in the sea

but the catch that was being landed by their son was for an order worth a good amount of money, helping pay off some of the over heads........

and we saw some wonderful views including Scalloway from the sea
