Aquaculture New Zealand was formed in 2007 as a single voice for the New Zealand aquaculture sector to protect the current industry, while enhancing its profitability and providing leadership to facilitate transformational growth.

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

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"s chief role is the implementation of the industry strategy which will see the sector grow to earn $1billion annually by 2025.
