Mussel - Blather's Fascinating Fact
|Did you know the mussel has a beard?! Hoo! It's true! Well, partially true, anyway. Mussels have a special gland that secretes a thing called "byssus" or "byssal thread." They use these tough beard-like fibers to anchor themselves to rocks and keep themselves in place. So, you see, the mussel's beard is functional rather than merely stylish. Then again, perhaps all beards should be this way.|
How To Catch Mussels
Shadow Size Is Small
If you're going only for Mussels, you can feel free to ignore medium and large sized sea creature shadows - Mussels will have only small shadows!
Available All Day
Mussels spawn all throughout the day. This means you won't have to worry about waiting for a specific time to catch them - anytime will be fine!
Found Near Rocks
Mussels are often found near large rocks in the water, so you should try to make your way over to areas with lots of rocks when searching for Mussels!
Chase After And Catch Them
Mussels move rather slowly, so it will be easy to just swim up to them from underwater and catch them! You won't have to worry about them getting away from you!
