Where Your Shellfish Comes From

Maine Lobster Now takes tremendous pride in sourcing the highest-quality seafood products to ship them directly to our customers. We adhere to NOAA FishWatch guidance on all sustainably sourced seafood products we offer. Bangs Island mussels are hand-raised and sustainably harvested from Maine’s Casco Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Maine on the state’s southern coast.

Serving Size

How Many Bangs Island Mussels in a Serving?

With every order of meaty Bangs Island mussels, you’ll get anywhere from 12-16 mussels in a pound. If you’re planning to eat these mussels as an appetizer before the main course of Maine lobster tails or Alaskan king crab legs, then you’ll easily be able to split the mussels among the table. If you’re planning to serve mussels as the main entrée, then we’d recommend serving the full 1 lb. of mussels per person.

Nutritional Benefits

Nutritional Benefits of Mussels

Like lobster and crab, mussels are another highly nutritious shellfish packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals to help support a healthy lifestyle.

A 3 oz. serving of mussels packs 20 grams of protein compared to just 4 grams of fat. Mussels contain vitamins B12, which aids in brain functionality, digestion, and sleeping better; vitamin C, which aids in immunity and repairing the body; and iron to support muscle repair and regulate cellular growth. Mussels are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, and the antioxidant selenium.
