New Zealand's seafood farmers now have a new stamp of approval to strive for.

The new management framework, A-Plus, was launched today at a national industry conference in Nelson.

The A-Plus credential will prove to consumers in this country and overseas that New Zealand's mussels, salmon and oysters are raised in line with world class environmental standards.

Aquaculture New Zealand says the programme provides the tools for farmers to improve on current standards.
