02/09/2016: New Zealand Marine Farming Association award pioneer

A pioneering mussel farmer from Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand by the name of Ivan Godsiff has been honoured for a lifetime in the industry.

According to a recent article written by Mike Watson Godsiff, who is also an environmentalist, would handpick mussels from the shoreline in order to help pay the bills.
