About Aquaculture New Zealand

Champions for your industry.

Based in Nelson, Aquaculture New Zealand was formed as a single voice for the New Zealand aquaculture sector and to implement the industry strategy released in 2006 which outlines the industry’s vision and goals to 2025.  The Strategy sets out a 10 point plan identifying the steps the organisation will be taking to work with the sector to achieve the vision of being a $1 billion industry by 2025.
Aquaculture New Zealand brings together the membership of the individual species bodies, the New Zealand Mussel Industry Council, the New Zealand Salmon Famers Association and the New Zealand Oyster Industry Association.

Primarily funded through an industry levy, the organisation is focused on legislative reform and the creation and implementation of research and development and market development strategies. This work is underpinned by a focus on sustainability and recognition of the current and future role of Maori in the development of the industry.
