The JFC float has been specifically designed so that they can withstand the pressures of high waves and sit steadily on the water, even when loaded with a full crop of mussels. The patented stability fin of JFC mussel floats ensures that our floats have a low profile in the water, causing limited vertical motion and reduced stress on the mussels. Consequently this “reduced stress” on the mussels means that they can concentrate on growing as opposed to expending their energy trying to remain attached to the rope during turbulent conditions.
In addition the fin design ensures the mussel holding lines do not brush “up and down” and so preventing the crop from falling back into the sea. The end result means that mussels grown using JFC mussel floats, grow larger, have a higher meat quality, and are much less susceptible to losses. All of these factors culminate in significantly increased yields over a shorter time period for the mussel farmer.
