The traditional method of growing green mussels in the Philippines is called the "stake" method where the mussel "spats" or young mussels freely attach to bamboo poles placed in the coastal areas. There is little management done and the number of mussel spats growing in the bamboo poles is nit controlled resulting to poor quality mussels, which are typically small in size and contains low meat content. The "stake" method is not also sustainable because it increases sedimentation in the mussel beds, causing the culture area to become shallow. With time, the shallow culture area will no longer be suitable for growing green mussels.
