A Year in Review 2019/20

19 November, 2020
Ko te kōunga o te pūtaiao te auahatanga ki te ao anamata. Cawthron has a long standing reputation for delivering science excellence, and our highlights over the past year demonstrate the real-world impact our science has had.


Delivering world-class science is at the heart of what we do, and our ability to be at the forefront of emerging opportunities has seen us advancing innovation in open ocean aquaculture, seaweed and ‘aquatech’ – all areas that have enormous potential for New Zealand’s aquaculture industry. 

We have continued to focus our research on growing and ensuring the safety of our seafood sector, developing bioactive resources, and improving the health of our freshwater ecosystems and oceans. These focus areas have proved to be well aligned with the increasing interest in consumer and environmental health, primary sector disease mitigation and investment in technology, and we believe they will see Cawthron play a significant role in supporting New Zealand’s Covid-19 recovery efforts.

There are now more than ever before opportunities to have a greater impact on the restoration and protection of waterways and the marine environment while promoting innovation to accelerate the development of a healthy aquaculture sector and exports.

We are proud of the positive difference Cawthron makes to New Zealand’s economy and our environment, and together we are creating a better future. Kei a tātou – we’ve got this.
