Summary

Mussel meal has potential as an alternative protein source for pig since it has high portein content and a balanced Amino acid pattern. Mussels are good filterers of Water and an effective Tool to clean Waters from nitrogen and phosphorus. Using mussel meal as feedstuff in animal production could close the aro-aqua nutrient cycle, bringing nutrients back from the Water to the agro-ecosystem.
