New Caledonia

New Caledonia is located at the heart of Oceania, 1,500 kilometers east of Australia, 5,000 west of Tahiti, 10,000 from the west coast of the United States, and 20,000 from Metropolitan France. Surrounded by the largest lagoons of the world, a true reservoir of biodiversity listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage, this particular French territory on the other side of the globe (with a total area of roughly 19 000 square meters) is among most beautiful archipelagos of the South Pacific Ocean.

New Caledonia (with its 270,000 inhabitants) is, more importantly, a region rich in history, where the Kanak ethnic identity is formed with a strong lie with mother earth and with ancestors. This is why Caledonian farmers have learned to live in harmony with nature by respecting tradition and consolidating local tribes for the benefit of the entire aquaculture sector.
