MESO : The first Croatian meat journal, Vol.XVI No.3 May 2014. -

Production of mussels is present in most of the Mediterranean countries, with Spain and Greece as the largest producers. Compared

to the total production, Croatian mussel production is continuously small – only around 3.000 tones of mussels a year are placed on the

market. Farming technology is relatively simple, while the whole sector is characterized with unorganized market and unconsolidated

small producers. Growth and condition index are important factors for mussel farming in terms of reaching the market sized length

and good meat yield. By knowing the hydrodynamics and trophic features of the production area and the biological characteristics of

mussels, along with the right zoo technical procedures, we can partially influence growth and condition index of cultured mussels. The

aim of this paper is to describe main ecological impacts on these two factors under aquaculture. The purpose is to summarize important

farming procedures, which can reflect with utilization of the natural potentials on the production site and with increased profitability for

the producer.
