The farm site is to the west of Brixham Harbour between Fishcombe Cove and Elberry Cove, measuring 300 metres by 100 metres (3 hectares) and is 100 metres from Seven Quarries . The long lines are set 2 metres below the surface supported by 200 litre plastic floats with an Amortisseur (shock absorber) at either end to compensate for the tide rise and fall and to damp out swells. Ropes to encourage seed mussel to settle are attached to the long lines, and hang down clear of the seabed. After the ropes have been in the sea for a month, the ropes will be suitable for the seed mussel to settle and attach themselves to the ropes with bysuss threads .
