Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) undertake surveys of areas with potential to or a history of mussel seed settlement each year. Arising from these surveys estimates are made of the findings of the areas which have been surveyed. BIM generally publishes the survey reports on its website at the following link - http://www.bim.ie/our-publications/aquaculture/

I will forward the Deputy's question to BIM for attention as appropriate.
