Aquaculture

We are experts in the care, cultivation and breeding of shellfish. We are working with Aotearoa’s seafood industry to build a future where farmed fish and shellfish crops no longer depend on wild populations and add value to aquaculture exports.

Seafood Safety

Through the Seafood Safety Research Programme we help Aotearoa’s aquaculture and fisheries industries detect and manage threats to the safety and quality of our kaimoana, ensuring continued product access to preferred international markets.

Bioactives

We lead the world in microalgae production and extraction for bioactives. We apply our ‘continuous culture’ system to grow algae known to produce commercially-valuable bioactives and to develop algal production systems for future use in large-scale biomass production.

Freshwater Health

Freshwater research is a pillar of Cawthron’s work and includes research into freshwater environments and ecosystems, the life forms that depend on them, and the factors that control their health and abundance.

Ocean Health

So that the sweet scent of the ocean remains. Science provides the foundation for making wise decisions about the use of our ocean and coastal resources. Cawthron scientists provide research, technology and advice for sustainable management of marine ecosystems and resources.
