MFA Environmental Award​

Respect for the environment is a core to our values and as such it was a pleasure for Maclab to sponsor the 2020 Marine Farming Association Environmental award. The very deserving winner of the award was Vaughan Ellis who was recognised for his efforts in championing the three year research project for the restoration of mussels beds in the Pelorus Sound (a project that Maclab has supported financially).
