Aquaculture

Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing primary industry and demand for aquaculture products is expected to strengthen significantly as the world’s population grows and wild-catch levels remain relatively static.

It is one of the world’s most efficient forms of food production and is considered a sustainable solution to feeding the world. The New Zealand aquaculture industry has positioned itself at the high-end of the market, exporting premium seafood products around the world.

Cookes is New Zealand’s leading supplier in Salmon nets and are working with key customers in the mussel farming industry to develop innovative solutions.
