Mussels

| 0 comments

We all hopped on the bus and drove to Cullivoe. On the way to Cullivoe we saw mussel lines they have big black floats, they are bit like big black plastic eggs. And they are ropes that hook the plastic eggs together. When we got there well first we all put on our boots. We all said hi to Christopher. We went to a big yellow box  full of water and mussels and when you looked closer you could see a sea slater. All of the mussels where stuck on to a rope that was very dirty and sea weed grew on it too. We saw some of the mussels opening up to feed on creatures in the water. We went to a box that has hairy rope that baby mussels grow on. We went over to a fish tank with no lid, there were mussels and sea slaters, brittle stars and an orange fish. Next we went through a door to a room full of mussels and other sea bugs and red sea weed. We looked for sea bugs. Then we went outside and there was a giant WASHING MACHINE that cleans the mussels and then they go on a moving conveyor belt and the people throw the bad ones in a bin. The good ones go in to yellow bag and send them to Billingsgate in London then they get sent to places in England and to Israel and Dubai.
