Industry Overview

Capturing the spirit of aquaculture.

Aquaculture is the fastest growing sector of its seafood industry.  It is relatively young compared to the food and beverage industries our nation has built its economic platform and reputation on.  As a producer of premium seafood, aquaculture is set to become the nation’s next major primary industry.

The flagship species are New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels, followed by King Salmon and Pacific Oysters with a number of new species currently being investigated for their commercial potential.

The New Zealand Aquaculture Farm Facts booklet provides the latest facts and statistics in relation to New Zealand’s aquaculture products, exports figures and stringent food safety and environmental sustainability practices.  Now available from Aquaculture New Zealand.
