Okains Bay Longline

Okains Bay Seafood in Christchurch is New Zealand’s largest privately owned long line fishing company. Okains use Biogold biodiesel in their fleet.
Description of facility: 

Our goal is for our entire product range to be carbon neutral whether it is purchased in London or Los Angeles! To reduce carbon emissions, our vessel Sharpshooter II runs on pure biodiesel.
Made in New Zealand, Biogold™ is produced from local recycled cooking oil and sustainably grown canola (oilseed rape). Compared with mineral diesel, Biogold™ has delivered a reduction in greenhouse gases of up to 90%. It has also had many other benefits for the environment.

• We use significantly less fuel
• Biodiesel breaks down in the water
• Significantly less exhaust emissions
• Lubricates engines, reducing wear and tear

We are now the biggest marine biodiesel user in New Zealand and plan to switch our fleet of trucks to the new fuel shortly.
