Mt Cook Alpine Salmon’s National Sales Manager Te Tane Trinick has been recognised as a “Seafood Star" by Seafood New Zealand.

Te Tane and Adam Clow of Whitianga were the joint recipients of the inaugural Seafood Stars Awards Young Achiever Award at a function in Wellington on the 31st August.

Te Tane Trinick, has demonstrated a strong commitment to the seafood industry’s future through various roles within the industry, says Seafood New Zealand’s Chief Executive Tim Pankhurst.

Te Tane’s interest in aquaculture and sustainable seafood sources began at an early age fishing and diving on the East Coast and going on to complete a Bachelor of Science, majoring in aquaculture.

Te Tane’s talents were recognised in 2010 when he was selected by Te Ohu Kaimoana and Japanese seafood company Nissui for a year-long scholarship in Japan.

“That investment paid off with Te Tane returning to New Zealand to work for Sealord, Foodstuffs and FMCG and now as National Sales Manager for Mt Cook Alpine Salmon who say Te Tane is proving to be an impressive advocate, not only for Mt Cook Alpine Salmon, but for everything New Zealand seafood has to offer, “ Tim Pankhurst says.

The awards reward innovation and excellence within our industry and recognise the contribution our diverse workforce makes to this important industry and their commitment to its ongoing sustainability.

The Seafood Stars Awards are part of the industry’s celebrations to mark the 30th anniversary of the fisheries Quota Management System with awards for excellence and innovation within the industry
