New Zealand’s Sandford, Sealord in talks for consolidation
Two of New Zealand’s biggest seafood companies are in talks about consolidating their fishing efforts, a senior manager revealed at a Nelson conference.
Sealord confirmed this morning that talks with Sanford were advanced.
Sanford inshore fisheries manager Shane Walsh yesterday told delegates to the New Zealand Marine Sciences Society’s annual conference that he had been in a meeting at Sealord earlier in the day.
“We were talking about why do we have all these vessels catching hoki? Why don’t we work together and create a one fleet-type approach? It’s about increasing efficiencies but working with other people to achieve that.”
