Seabird Smart Awards 2021

The Seabird Smart Awards 2021 ceremony was held with a twist this year, taking place via a virtual platform.


And while we missed seeing everyone in person, an online ceremony meant more people could join us including overseas viewers, to celebrate our winners.

The Supreme Champion Award was awarded to Dave Moore and Darrin Fabricius of Wild Fish (NZ) Ltd:


Mike Te Pou, Skipper of FV The Commission won our Mitigation Champion Award:
