  • Bioactive Nutrition from Nature

    In the search for dependable sources of bio-active nutrients, Aquaculture scientists identified high levels of natural vitamins, chondroitin sulfates, ionized collagens and omega 3 marine lipids present in the soft tissues of selected Greenshell Mussels of New Zealand. This discovery in the late 60’s stimulated the mussel aquaculture in the isolated, pristine tidal waters of New Zealand. Read more
  • The Cradle of Life

    In 1995 Aquaculture Inc. set up the Enzaq Aquaculture Ltd processing factory in Marlborough New Zealand and developed the low-heat, one-step, quick drying system called the Enzaq Flash Dry Process. This unique process avoids cooking and handling of the green mussels which is typically done by other mussel powder manufacturers. Enzaq’s high level of Mucopolysaccharides and polyunsaturated omega 3 marine lipids is the direct result of this unique technology. Read more
