The New Zealand seafood industry has been deemed an essential business in the current lockdown. That means, where possible, our men and women are still out there working to bring you fresh seafood. We take the safety of our people extremely seriously. While operating in an environment of social distancing and community restrictions is challenging, we are doing our utmost to meet strict government requirements to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We thank our people and thank you for your support.
