Nigel Bradly was interviewed for Radio New Zealand’s article about how the seaweed market is a golden opportunity for New Zealand. “The government is working really hard so that it can enable, not prevent, a sector like this from growing. Part of the reason Aotearoa has been so slow to the industry is because it’s very good at farming other aquaculture such as mussels, oysters and salmon, and there wasn’t an appetite or demand for trying out a new species. Big global producers have very mature supply chains that New Zealand companies would have to compete with. But the tide is changing.”
