Everything is better,
When it is wetter,
Under the sea.
- Sebastian - The Little Mermaid
That little crab was on to something and scientists at The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric research (NIWA) must have been listening. They're currently experimenting with compost and mussels in hopes of making a healthier environment for marine life and in the process, create the most delicious mussels.
Underwater compost sounds a little tricky because it would seem to me to be too wet. They always say that your compost should be about as wet as a wrung out sponge. But when you combine one of my favorite sea foods and compost, how can you go wrong. Good luck to the folks at NIWA.
