Aquaculture

The New Zealand aquaculture industry has a goal of reaching an export value of $1bn by 2025 and Sanford’s 210 aquaculture farms form an increasingly important part of our business, as well as making positive contributions to local communities. The farms are located across New Zealand and are managed using sustainable practices to help protect our stunning marine environments.
