Musselbaren

in Ljungskile

märta, Food, malt & destillation

We love experiences. And we love sharing things. So we just keep on making our dreams and ideas into reality, linked to the places where our Musselbars are located, and to life under the surface, our sustainable future and our traditions. This has resulted in several different experiences for body and soul, that we are proud to offer you, your company, your group of friends or your family.

M/S Märta

With our own boat Märta, a 13 metre steel trawler, we can offer fantastic Mussel expeditions to the vast offshore farms to harvest, see, feel, experience and learn more about one of the world’s most sustainable delicacies. We’ll cook our harvest together, directly on the rocks or in our kitchen – and we promise to share our very best (and most secret) recipes with you!
You can also join us and Märta on one of our research expeditions. As a contribution back to the fjord that provides us with our ingredients we have undertaken to carry out fish surveys for the Institute of Marine Research in Lysekil. With us you can participate in research that documents the species, sex, length, weight and condition of the creatures under the surface, in several of the protected area in our fjords.

Food delivered to your home & catering

Our catering business is growing all the time, and ultimately that’s because we usually try to put on a ‘show’, bringing our largest pans or our big truck equipped with grills, smokers or barbecues. Foodwise we can provide most things, and for any occasion. So for us its as natural to deliver a three course meal to a sit down dinner as it is to prepare food in front of guests and talk about the ingredients at the same time. We can even come out on our boat Märta and moor at a jetty to make food on your own island.

Malt & Distillation

Ours might just be Sweden’s smallest distillery.
For us it’s all about the mystique around making drinks, and our passion for taste combinations, local ingredients and collaborations with local producers, divers, mushroom pickers and hunters. We want to keep refining and developing. We want to be inspired to both distill the best snaps and brew a real classic pilsner. Almost all our ingredients are sourced locally, direct from the producer.

Expeditions

Expeditions

Onboard M/S Märta you can travel out to the vast mussel farms in the fjords with us, where you’ll learn about the lifecycle of the blue mussel and harvest your own fresh mussels, which the group will clean and prepare on the way back. We’ll then cook them together in our giant mussel pan and enjoy eating them in the historic clock tower at Lyckorna in Ljungskile.

Our mussel expeditions have set departures from Lyckorna in Ljungskile, from April to October. Join us on a trip to one of the massive mussel farms out in the fjord and harvest the very freshest blue mussels which we’ll then cook and enjoy together at Klocktornet. If you want to book a mussel expedition at another time or tailor make an experience to suit your specific requirements just get in touch and we’ll do our best to sort that for you.

Research expedition

Research expedition

We’ll fish for samples of protected species, such as cod, whiting, saithe and lobster in the waters that are both open and closed for fishing, as directed by the Institute of Marine Research in Lysekil. Join us on an exciting expedition in the name of science. A unique opportunity which after we have carried out our work will finish with dinner at Musselbaren, in the historic clocktower at Lyckorna in Ljungskile.
