Moana New Zealand

In the first partnership of its kind, environmental organisation WWF-New Zealand is working with the country’s largest Iwi-owned fishing company, Moana New Zealand, to achieve best practice environmentally responsible seafood and advocate for greater sustainability in the wider fishing industry.
Moana New Zealand is partnering with WWF-New Zealand to become a leader in sustainable in-shore fishing and aquaculture in New Zealand. Moana New Zealand partnered with WWF-New Zealand in July 2014 in a long-term collaboration aimed at working together to produce seafood that meets best practice environmentally responsible standards, and advocating for greater sustainability in the wider fishing industry.
Since the partnership began, Moana New Zealand and WWF-New Zealand have focused on delivering tangible results including action on:
  • eliminating the threat to Māui dolphins,
  • reducing seabird by-catch,
  • adopting best practice on Moana’s pāua farming operations through seeking Aquaculture Stewardship Council certification,
  • improving transparency through promoting electronic monitoring,
  • addressing resource use through measuring and monitoring energy and water consumption and identifying efficiency improvements,
  • reducing waste through recycling poly-bins and reducing the use of poly bins.
