Greenshell™ mussel farming in safe, clean and remote New Zealand.
Carbon positive, organic and green, with proven health benefits. Mussels are filter feeders which are neither fed or fertilized, no chemicals are used in the production cycle, they feed on natural phytoplanktons and other microscopic marine organisms.
An undeveloped farm for sale. The farming water is situated in the pristine waters of Area B at Wilson’s Bay inside the Firth of Thames on New Zealand’s North Island, an area of extremely high nutrient flows.
(There may also be opportunities to buy a developed farm, and/or Joint Venture arrangements may be considered, as would investment in existing farming companies. We are flexible, and welcome new ideas and propositions.)
The international frozen half-shell Greenshell mussel market is very strong and growing, as is the mussel farm-gate price. Interesting diversification is occurring, eg the live mussel market into Asia, powder-based healtheries products, and premium pet foods etc. Mussel product is now difficult to source owing to these dynamic market forces, unless a trader owns an interest in producing farms.
We offer a renewable 35 year Government lease for mussel farming water, issued in 2011 and expiring 2046.
A farm consists of one 8 hectare (20 acres) area of seabed in 18-20 meters of water, capable of producing +/- 500 tonnes of New Zealand Greenshell™ mussels per annum. Current mussel price (February 2020) is NZ$1400 per tonne for medium-grade mussels.
The price for the undeveloped 8-ha farm is NZ$1,280,000 (8ha x NZ$160/ha - NZ$1.28m) plus refundable GST tax of 15%. Near offers may be considered. Costs of development and management are additional.
Fully managed operations may be available if required.
This area is New Zealand's fastest growing area for green shell mussels. The industry is growing rapidly, and the few remaining empty farms are quickly being developed. See weblink below and complete the 'contact seller' form below for more information.
