The Transport

Stage 4 – The Transport

Helicopters are used in the Fiordland area to fly live lobster from the depots to Te Anau but elsewhere the catch is transported by insulated truck to one of five export packing factories in New Zealand. Here fish are weighed and graded then swum in tanks to regenerate them for 24-48 hours before being packed for export from the Christchurch and Auckland international airports.
