We decided that we didn’t actually have any need for 100 mussels and so only took 5 or so, and boiled them up. I kept well away, but Anja ate them and didn’t have any noticeable side-effects.

    The next day we walked part of the Queen Charlotte track – another one of New Zealand’s famous ...

I had the opportunity to test some of the samples by using a turbidimeter.The amount of bentonite added to the sample is then scaled up to suit the size of the tank.
