When are mussels in season?

    Hi all,

    I am a bit confused about when mussels are in season

    I bought very uninspiring mussels this week and made me think about mussel seasons
    I did a quick internet search and I got more confused.
    One site says
    "The season for Dutch mussels starts in late June/early July and lasts until March/April of the following year. In Denmark, the season for rope-grown mussels begins in March and ends in June. "

    On another site they say
    "The season for gathering molluscs in England falls in winter and early spring. "

    And finally, a BBC site states
    Peak season for fresh mussels is October to March.
