Gisborne could have a big future in aquaculture which is the fastest-growing sector in New Zealand’s seafood industry.

 

And aquaculture has been given a significant boost in stature and status with the creation this month of a new national organisation.

 

Aquaculture is a booming success story, having grown in 20 years from an annual turnover of $50 million to a business turning over $1 million a day and employing 2500.

 

Its potential is driven by global demand and peerless product quality, underpinned by New Zealand’s reputation for clean, sustainable production.

 

Prime Minister Helen Clark emphasised this point in launching Aquaculture New Zealand — citing the example of Queenstown’s luxury Blanket Bay Lodge, which was recently rated by Conde Naste travel magazine as one of the world’s best hotels for its cuisine.

 

Ms Clark said the executive chef used fresh oysters, salmon, mussels and paua on the menu every night because, in his own words: "The raw product when it arrives to us, is the finest grade quality you can find on the planet for its taste, its flavour and its presentation."

 

Adding to aquaculture’s prospects is an accelerating global demand for seafood.

 

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation predicts world seafood consumption will increase by one-third in the next decade; a demand which cannot be met sustainably by tinned fish and will require a much greater supply of aquaculture product.

 

Aquaculture has been identified by the Beehive as one of the most important sectors for future economic growth, with prodigious scope for development, particularly in the regions and . . . in small coastal towns.

 

Aquaculture New Zealand is expected to provide cohesion, stability and market direction as the industry progresses.

 

"As the industry grows, it’s up to us all to ensure its development is sustainable," Helen Clark said.’

 

She’s right! This would ensure its long-term future; meeting consumer demand and giving coastal towns like Gisborne an economic boost.
