Moule de Bouzigues refers to iodine-strong mussel from the village of Bouzigues on the Mediterranean coast of France. Bouzigues is a town in Hérault department in the Languedoc-Roussillon Region in southern France. Bouzigues is a center for oyster and mussel production as far back as the Greeks - the earliest fishers here lived in troglodyte caves along the shore - Bouzigues is one of the towns on the Etang de Thau in Languedoc Rousssillon. There is a popular museum in the town to explain the history and techniques of the production of oysters and mussels in the Etang de Thau. The oyster beds themselves are very photogenic, and best enjoyed by walking along the path along the edge of the etang.
