Seamless partnerships and alignment with industry ensure Cawthron’s aquaculture, food safety and environmental research has line-of-sight to market. Not only is this good business, it’s also very satisfying to see science we’ve worked on for years in a lab, making a positive difference to New Zealand’s economy and in the wider world.
