As an island nation, New Zealand is surrounded by water with the Tasman Sea on its west coast and the South Pacific on its east. In fact, the whopping 9,300 miles of shore-to-sea surface is home to the world’s 9th largest coastline.
Due to its remote southern setting, the coastal waters here tend to be less polluted, making it a more hygienic environment for the sea creatures that call these waters home—be it the Grey Mullet or the King Salmon.
Catching such fish is done sustainably, too. In fact, 91% of the country’s seabed has never been trawled, allowing for marine life and sediments to remain free of pollutants and, therefore, the fish itself to advance more healthfully.
