Spring Bay Seafoods Pty Ltd
Spring Bay Seafoods produces, processes and markets blue mussels, scallops, abalone and Pacific oysters that are sought after by connoisseurs of fine food from around the world.
The company's blue mussels and most of its scallops are produced in its 3,500 hectare marine farm, which lies four miles offshore in pristine, sheltered waters adjacent to Tasmanias Maria Island National Park. This unique facility, which is the largest sub-surface marine farm in Australia, is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of strong cold local currents, providing exceptional conditions to produce a range of mussels and scallops that are considered by many culinary experts to be the best in the world.
Spring Bay has recently become the first company in Australia to market clean shaven mussels. The company has installed an innovative system at its state-of-the-art processing facility in Triabunna that removes the beard and leaves the mussel looking well groomed and ready for the pot.
