Marine and Aquaculture Contracting Ltd (MAC) is a small, locally owned and operated family company, providing a professional, friendly and affordable service.

MAC began as a company supplying temporary, part time labour to the marine and aquaculture industry, primarily in the Marlborough region.

As the need for skilled labour in these fields continued to increase, so did the need for a larger MAC vessel. In early 2017 Seawatch, a 23 metre catamaran was purchased to expand the range of labour and services MAC could provide.

MAC has developed a unique profile within the region offering companies in the marine industry the ability to retain their small, core team whilst employing temporary contracters during times of increased work loads or unexpected projects.

With extensive marine industry experience, we can work safely, efficiently and unsupervised alongside your team, contributing to the effectiveness of your operation.
