Hoki from New Zealand.

We have been informed that European consumers who are environmentally minded, will soon be able to eat ethically farmed fish from New Zealand.

Unilever have signed a deal with a New Zealand fishery to use the hoki, a fish similar to a whiting, in their frozen fish products. The fishery is recognised as meeting the standards set by the Marine Stewardship Council, an independent non-profit-making body set up in 1986 by the World Wide Fund for Nature and Unilever.

Hoki is sold by a number of New Zealand food companies, who together own the Hoki Fishery Management Company, a co-operative set up to improve management of the fishery.
