Musselbanks that stick out of the water during low tide have shown to be a positive addition to the environment. Sadly these structures have decreased or even disappeared over time. Bringing them back would be an improvement for coastal defense (it decreases the erosion in an area), natural value (birds, crabs and other wildlife are often found in these areas with a high food availability) and economy (mussel farmers could use a portion of the plots for cultivating and selling mussels). 'Added value with Mussels' looks at the best strategy to bringing back these types of musselbanks.
