    I saw that report on TV some time ago.

    It s quite dangerous, but a good source of proteins and vitamins for the eskimo.

    Yep, here in the states we have people that make there living doing that. Diving in deep water for the better mussel. There of course known as mussel diivers and different mussels bring different prices.
