Award Winning Tasmanian Blue Mussels and Scallops

Spring Bay Seafoods produce some of the finest Blue Mussels in Australia and process both farmed and wild Tasmanian scallops. These premium quality products are raised in Tasmania in some of the purest, coldest water in the world.

The company's processing factory and packhouse is located on the waterfront in Spring Bay, just 4 kilometers from the township of Triabunna.

Unlike most other mussel producers, Spring Bay's mussel farms are located offshore in deep, nutrient-rich waters.

The deepwater oceanic marine farms stretch across some of the most precious and pristine seawater in the world. Located 2 kilometres offshore with a fast flowing, cold and nutritious current, Spring Bay's marine farm is 25-35 metres deep providing a unique growing environment unrivalled anywhere and ideally suited to its unique style of shellfish farming.

Spring Bay Seafoods roe-on scallops and blue mussels start their journey here and end up on some of the finest restaurant tables in Australia and in nearby export markets throughout Asia.

Spring Bay Seafoods have one of the only commercial-scale mussel hatcheries anywhere in the world. Using novel rearing techniques the mussels are raised from seed and nurtured under strict quality and environmental conditions, then transferred to suspended lines in the deep waters off Tasmania's East Coast. This vertical integration program ensures a sustainable and reliable supply of perfect mussels well into the future. Spring Bay Mussels are Tasmanian Blue Mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis).

Spring Bay Seafoods process both farmed and wild Tasmanian scallops. The company's 3500 ha marine farm lease is 4 miles offshore in clean sheltered waters adjacent to Maria Island. Spring Bay Scallops are Tasmanian Scallops (Pecten fumatus) also commonly known as "commercial" or "southern" scallops.
