Kiwi cul­ture

Element - - Cover Story -

The com­bi­na­tion of our rel­a­tively pol­lu­tion free coast­lines and these de­vel­op­ments have led to New Zealand salmon farm­ing’s recog­ni­tion as the world’s green­est by the Global Agua­cul­ture Per­for­mance In­dex, a project of the Seafood Ecol­ogy Re­search Group )SERG2 at the Univer­sity of Vic­to­ria in Canada. Fur­ther afield, global stan­dards for sus­tain­able agua­cul­ture are cur­rently be­ing fi­nalised. It is hoped this will lead to the world­wide pro­mo­tion of an Agua­cul­ture Stew­ard­ship Coun­cil cer­ti­fi­ca­tion scheme. This would be sim­i­lar to those al­ready in place for wild fish un­der the Ma­rine Stew­ard­ship Coun­cil and wood prod­ucts un­der the For­est Stew­ard­ship Coun­cil.
