In developing this new method, we asked ourselves – how can we fish with care?
The Tiaki way replaces traditional trawl nets with revolutionary Precision Seafood Harvesting (PSH) technology.
Fishing the Tiaki way is a more sustainable way of fishing producing higher quality seafood.
When fishing in-shore species fish are landed alive and in much better condition. There is also potential for undersized or unintended catch to be returned to the sea with a much higher survivability rate.
When used to harvest deep sea species such as alfonsino or hoki, the new technology is reducing the damage to the fish, increasing the quality and adding significant value to the catch.
Fishing the Tiaki way has significant potential environmental and economic benefits, and is set up to be a game-changer in the management of sustainable fisheries and the growth of the industry.
