The Blue Dragon Mussel Wagon

Local Hand-Picked Wild Mussels

United States | Maine | Brunswick, Portland

Phil Gray has made his living from the ocean since 1976. In those years he's witnessed changes to the tidal environment, including the explosion of invasive species and increased seaweed and algea growth. In response to the effects on local shellfish, Phil started to alternate what he picked. This has been his way to improve sustainability.

 

For several years rope cultured mussels dominated the market until local pallets recognized the superior flavor of wild mussels that were hand collected locally. Phil picks mussels on Maine's midcoast by walking out to tidal beds or rowing a skiff to rocky outcroppings. The mussels are then cleaned in a tumbler so you get a beautiful food ready for your favorite recipes everytime.
