Environment Programme Gold Status

We are pleased to announce that in recognition of our commitment to environmental management, the Marine Farming Association has awarded both Maclab (NZ) and Maclab Tasman a Gold Status rating under its environmental certification programme.

Through its environment committee, the MFA is very active in advocating for the highest standards in environmental management by the marine farming industry.

We would like to thank Scott Gillanders (Maclab NZ GM Aquaculture) for making a valuable contribution during his time as a member of the MFA environment committee. He has recently completed his term, and we are pleased to announce that Stoney Bourke (Maclab Tasman) has now been appointed.
