The photo shows a Green mussel (Perna viridis) harvesting boat. The green mussel is the most important species cultured along the coast of Thailand. There are cultivated by extending the wing of the traditional bamboo stake trap, or staking bamboo poles, or coconut palm fronds into the muddy bottom at a depth of 4-8 meters to allow the mussel spats to settle on them.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
