Pemaquid Mussels

As co-founder of Pemaquid Mussel Farms, Carter Newell has put his Ph.D in marine biology to work for more than four decades. His study of mussel biology and coastal marine ecosystems has made him one of today’s leading shellfish aquaculture scientists.

Pemaquid Mussel Farm operations are designed around half a century of research into mussel biology, physiology, and behavior, and about the coastal marine ecosystems in which they thrive. This forms the background to developing the aquaculture techniques and farming locations which produce the best tasting, meatiest, healthiest mussels available.
