The AquacultureNew Zealand organization believes that New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels are one of the most environmentally friendly seafood protein sources available. Sea Port’s own assessment supports this view and we graphically communicate this by way of our “Go Blue! Seafood Sustainability Spectrum®” and our “Go Blue! Plate Choose My Seafood for Sustainability®”.
While New Zealand’s mussel aquaculture helps sustain and preserve the health of our oceans, actually eating the mussels helps sustain and advance our own personal health too.
