Successful Harvest Methods

Each commercial fishery has specifically designed an effective harvest method to ensure top quality, eliminate by-catch, and protect the environment. Each species is just as unique as the harvest method! To name a few, Spot Prawns are harvested by trap, Halibut are fished with long lines, and Sea Cucumbers are hand-picked by commercial divers.

What our
fishers say

My parents are fishermen and I literally grew up on the fishing boat. I started off in my playpen on the boat and then officially starting working as a fisherman when I was 12. Fishing is a lifestyle and it is so very rewarding to pass down this cultural identity, heritage and knowledge about our resource to my kids and the next generations.
