Farmed New Zealand shellfish 100 per cent safe

Farmed New Zealand shellfish 100 per cent safe.

19 Dec, 2012

Farmed New Zealand Greenshell Mussels and Pacific Oysters on sale at local supermarkets and seafood retailers are delicious, nutritious and 100 per cent safe to eat.

Aquaculture New Zealand chairman Peter Vitasovich has assured New Zealanders they can enjoy locally farmed shellfish these holidays with absolute confidence.

“New Zealand marine farmers operate one of the world’s strictest seafood quality assurance programmes, meeting the standards set by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries, United States Food and Drug Administration and the European Union,” Mr Vitasovich said.

“Both the shellfish, and the water in which they are grown are rigorously tested before harvesting takes place.

“Fresh, sustainable, delicious, nutritious - Greenshell Mussels and Pacific Oysters are the taste of summer, proudly grown in your back yard.

“New Zealanders can enjoy farmed mussels and oysters knowing they are eating the safest shellfish in the world.”
