Transferring stock

You've come to a section of our website that's not quite ready. When complete, it will provide information on the requirements and procedures for transferring aquaculture stock.

Get approval to transfer broodstock

Before transferring broodstock to a farm, you'll need to get approval from Fisheries New Zealand. You can't take species from natural waters (for example, the sea, lakes, and rivers) to use as broodstock on a fish farm. Stock must come from another land-based fish farm, a marine farm, or a licensed fish receiver.
