Whelks are caught locally using traditional pots, a low impact method of fishing, Once cooked, the meat and shells are separated. The shells are crushed and cleaned several times then dried. Finally, each bag is individually packaged and hand-tied. Around 5,000 tons of whelks are processed each year. Shell On Earth help support the circular economy since 100% of the welk is used and non is wasted.
