Mussel farming

In the Coffee Bay – Hole in the Wall area along the Wild Coast of South Africa, mussels have traditionally been part of the local people’s diet since the first human inhabitants of the area. However, this plentiful lifestyle has changed. Over the last 20 years there has been an over exploitation of natural resources in the area. This is why the local community have implemented a successful mussel rehabilitation project, encouraging all ages of their society to get involved. Photos by Pippa Hetherington of Earthstock
