Precision Seafood Harvesting has been selected by The Kiwi Innovation Network (KiwiNet) – a consortium of universities, Crown Research Institutes and Crown entities – as a finalist in the KiwiNet Research Commercialisation Awards. The Awards celebrate "turning clever science into commercial value", and we’re honoured to be recognised in two categories, the Researcher Entrepreneur Award (Alistair Jerrett, Plant & Food Research) and the Minter Ellison Rudd Watts Research and Business Partnership Award.

New Zealand set to change global fishing industry with new sustainable fishing technology.

Imagine if every fish landed on a fishing boat was alive, in perfect condition and small fish, sharks and other species could be safely released underwater before a catch was lifted on-board.

The first underwater images ever released of revolutionary New Zealand fishing technology show how a partnership between New Zealand scientists and three Kiwi fishing companies will radically change the global fishing industry and make that a reality for wildfish harvesting.
