The mussels have spawned! The season is officially over & Harry is now taking a well earned break!

Next year’s mussels are happily growing in the cool salty waters of the aquaculture farm. 

Deliveries will commence early in the new year – please check the socials for updates.

Thank you to all my valued customers for supporting the business over the last season.

Mussels for everyone

Harry has supplied mussels directly to the general public from his boat, the Seahorse, at the Flinders wharf since 2000. Mussels are out of the water in the morning, on to your plate for lunch or dinner. You may need to wake him up, as a snooze in the sun between customers often beckons. Mussels are available from the boat seasonally, late December until mid-winter, when the mussels are on!

These are fabulous, fresh mussels. I remember these as the best mussel I have ever had in my life (for just $12 kg).

Flinders Conchilia

To add to the Flinders Mussel experience Harry opened a food van 2016 called the Flinders Conchilia (the Conch). Located in the carpark of the Flinders foreshore, you can find Harry cooking and serving his finest for you to eat, by the beach. On the menu are his mussels served with Baker Boy’s crusty bread and your choice of a house-made laksa or napoli sauce. Once again, out of the water in the morning, and on to your plate for lunch. You bring the vino. The Conch is open seasonally.
