Our Smaller black Mussel Bouys are individual 16” diameter balls with a single attachment lug to secure them. These bouys can be used to support longline systems as well but are not capable of supporting the weight of heavier “stacked tray” growing apparatus which are sometimes hung from the Double-Line Barrel bouy supported style.
Mussel Bouys are adequate for continuously socked mussel ropes hung like Christmas Tree garland up and down along the length of a horizontal surface supported longline. These smaller Mussel bouys are also submersible to enable the farmer to further reduce the visual impact of the farm. We carry Submersible Mussel Bouys in stock.
