Seafood carbon emissions tool Blue mussel (Mytilus edulis), Farmed, System: Rafts, Notes: Mussel production does not require the use of feed inputs, so emissions are primarily the result of energy use by vessels and vehicles during grow-out. Several studies of emissions associated with mussel production have been undertaken and show consistently low rates of energy use during production. As with other bivalves, emissions rates are higher when assessed per unit of protein due to the low edible portion of protein yield.
