Tackling Waste in Aquaculture

Aquaculture New Zealand and the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) have partnered with the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) to work together to minimise plastic waste in New Zealand aquaculture. 

The Sustainable Business Network is committed to transitioning New Zealand to a circular economy where resources are never abandoned to become waste. Products are designed to be safe and easy to manage in cycles of production and reproduction.

SBN use a three element framework based on circular economy principles for addressing plastic waste. This was created by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, New Plastics Economy project.
  • Eliminate the plastic we don’t need.
  • Innovate to ensure the plastics we do need are reusable, recyclable or compostable.
  • Circulate all plastic items we use to keep them in the economy and out of the environment
