New Zealand has implemented rigorous environmental schemes to ensure rich harvests for our future generations.

The New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussel Environmental Code of Practice directs best industry practices throughout the growing and harvesting cycle to minimize potential effects on the environment. These practices have been recognized by international conservation organization Blue Ocean Institute ranking New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels as one of the top two “eco-friendly” seafoods in the world.

To mitigate environmental impacts the New Zealand government has a number of environmental controls in place, including the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) and the Fisheries Act 1996.
