Saldanha Bay is home to Blue Ocean Mussels, South Africa’s premium mussel farming operation known to many as simply “the BOM” – thanks to our reputation for providing a quality product and service.
But we can’t take all the credit. Our location is paramount to our product’s excellence, plump, juicy and slightly sweet taste. The unpolluted, pristine seawater in Saldanha Bay is perfect for mussel farming, because the windy West Coast conditions create upwelling currents that support the fresh, clean, cold and nutrient-rich water. This makes it perfect for growing some of the best mussels in world (while maybe not so much for swimming).
