While generally the Seafood industry is doing very well in the international arena Sanfords is leading the pack. Company CE Eric Barratt has been a champion of the Korean market for quite some time and now it is paying off.

We did hear a rumour that they were selling their mussels a bit cheap though, much to the chagrin of the rest of the market. Does this mean that Sanfords is looking to buy some mussel farms here in good old NZ?

It is good to see some fleet rejeuvenation as well. In the last few years there hads been a , sell down of, at sea assets across the NZ seafood industry.

Rock Lobster is another market doing ok as well.

Some very big shiny new boats in the Bluff fleet.
