The estimated area for 12 thousand rafts of mussel farming is about 216,000 square meters (21.6 hectares) in Hestfjörður and Skötufjordur (the dark areas).

The ship lands the shell directly for cleaning and processing in Stykkishólmur.

The cultivation area is in clear and cold seawater in an area that is very suitable for mussel cultivation.

The temperature of the sea is such that it takes about 24-28 months to bring a shell to market size.

The project has already received a cultivation and operating permit in Skotufjörður and a research permit in Hvammsfjörður.
