Products & Systems
Our research develops new methods and technologies to ensure the sustainability of the seafood industry.
Plant & Food Research works closely with New Zealand’s major seafood companies to develop new methods of production, harvest and postharvest management to ensure long-term sustainability of the industry. Our research works with capture and handling of wild fish, culture and husbandry of farmed fish, as well as research into the postharvest management of live shellfish and rock lobster.
We also work with industrial manufacturers to develop new biomaterials from seafood by-products, as well as new ingredients for functional foods and nutraceuticals.
