Blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) have been cultivated in Europe since the 13th century (France), and have been used as a food source for more then 20,000 years.

Blue mussels are the most commonly found mussel in North American markets.

Cultivated mussels grow up to five times faster than wild mussels and yield two to three times more meat. The majority of mussels brought to market are cultured mussels.

Mussel shells are also used in button making.
Myticulture is the culture or cultivation of mussels.
