Company Summary

We intend to start up Pakiri Aquaculture to grow grass carp fingerlings received from Mahurangi Technical Institute. We intend to export chilled whole grass carp once they are 1-2 kgs in weight. Our customers will mainly be supermarkets or fresh fish outlets. We intend to export our fish through Leigh Fisheries Ltd, who are NZ's largest exporter of chilled fish. There is an opportunity to supply sustainable fish.
