History and Background

United FisheriesUnited Fisheries is located in Christchurch, the major city of the South Island of New Zealand. The company has grown since 1974 from modest beginnings to become one of the top ten seafood companies in New Zealand. United Fisheries is a family owned business with a highly knowledgeable and experienced team of fishing, marine farming, production, marketing and administration personnel and is one of the largest employers in the Christchurch area.

The supply of fish, the essential raw material for our business is largely assured by having our own "quotas" covering the main commercial species of New Zealand. The catching operation utilises company owned and operated fishing vessels, and a number of chartered deep-sea factory trawlers.

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 and Pacific Oysters.

We produce and supply top quality products from our purpose built new 5,000 square metre, temperature controlled factory. These processing facilities are equal to any in its class in the world. The advanced design and incorporation of the latest technology will meet the ever increasing international standards and conditions for many years to come.
