The company owns several established mussel farms, as well as having contracts with other farms, which provide a secure supply of the unique New Zealand “Greenshell™ Mussels”.

United Fisheries continues to expand its aquaculture operation in mussels and is also developing the cultivation of other shellfish species. The are grown on ropes in a controlled and natural environment to ensure quality and condition.

Once the mussels have matured to their optimum size, they are then checked for quality and only harvested once they reach their best condition. They are then transported under refrigeration to the factory for processing.

United Fisheries is an approved processor for shellfish by the U.S. FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration), which approval is only given when high standards of environmental cleanliness, freedom from pollution and factory hygiene are met.
