The Scottish Shellfish Marketing Group Ltd is the premier sales organisation for farmed shellfish in the United Kingdom. The Group supply a range of shellfish, with their main product lines being rope-grown mussels and Pacific oysters. It works from two factories, the Bellshill one with live shellfish holding tanks, live shellfish packing and added value production lines. Members produce shellfish along the entire Western seaboard of Scotland, from Kintyre in the south to the Shetland Isles in the north. Mussels are available live in-shell and as ready meals in a choice of sauces. The Scottish Shellfish Marketing Group Ltd has developed a range of cooked, ready-to-reheat products using rope-grown mussels from the West Coast of Scotland. Oysters are sold whole and live in-shell. Once farmed, SSMG oysters are kept in holding tanks, which also act as a purification facility.
