About Aquaculture New Zealand


Our vision for the New Zealand aquaculture industry draws on the overarching goals of each of its key portfolios and recognises the synergies within.

We recognise the potential for the industry to transform and grow within a supportive framework of public understanding, enabling legislation, strategic market development and innovation.


Our mission is to protect the current industry, while enhancing its profitability and providing leadership to facilitate transformational growth.

The aim is to ensure that the New Zealand aquaculture sector is recognised within New Zealand and around the world as producing healthy, high quality, environmentally sustainable aquaculture products.
