Established in 1994, Sea Jho Limited is a fishing company dedicated to exporting New Zealand commercial fish species worldwide. Based in Christchurch, Sea Jho also manages and operates deep water chartered trawlers in New Zealand waters.

Sea Jho (pronounced “see-joe”) in Korean can mean “the goddess of sea” or “the founder”. As a trivia, the word “Jho” also contains the initials of the founding shareholders’ initials; Jeong-Hwan and Ok.

Sea Jho has networks to every continent in the world except the Antarctic (the Antarctic penguins prefer to catch their own fish). Here at Sea Jho, we are committed to building strong relationships with our buyers through trust and sustained trade. We source fish from a number of other fish producers to ensure a diverse range and quantity of fish are available to meet the current demands of our buyers.

New Zealand has a unique world leading quota management system (QMS) which ensures the sustainable and responsible utilisation of the main commercial species. Sea Jho's staff have many years of experience in deep water trawling in New Zealand and provide local trawl management service to foreign companies wishing to operate in New Zealand waters.
