According to Statistics New Zealand, in 2009 we exported $1302million worth of fish, crusteceans and molluscs.
In our household, one of us doesn't eat fish- period. Though occasionally a rare exception is made for fish caught by a friend.
For anyone concerned about whether the fish you eat is a sustainable choice, we recommend you check out NZ Forest and Bird's 'Best Fish Guide'. There's a wallet guide you can print off so that its always handy for the next time you buy fish.
Please do take some time to check out the information on the Forest and Bird website so that we can all try to make more informed choices when we buy our seafood.
