The world's greenest aquaculture industry


The world's greenest aquaculture industry


For decades New Zealand marine farmers have been producing an 'A' game. Now they're stepping that up to an A+.

New Zealand Greenshell mussels, King salmon and Pacific oysters are already independently recognised among the world's most sustainable seafoods. 

The A+ programme takes the industry a step further, setting world leading sustainable aquaculture standards and then publicly reporting on the industry's performance against those standards.
