In 1957, Leigh Fisheries was established by pioneering families in the coastal village of Leigh north of Auckland. Today, the company is predominantly owned by private shareholders. Together with its sister companies in Europe, the United States and Asia, which market and distribute seafood to wholesalers, restaurants and supermarkets, and the joint venture company Lee Lobster, it forms the Lee Group.
The Lee Fish brand is recognized around the world as a prime source for premium-quality chilled seafood.
Lee Fish Ltd is an innovative company based in Leigh, a small village at Cape Rodney on the north island of New Zealand. It combines more than 50 years of fishing experience with extensive know-how and total commitment to quality and has the technology to guarantee an excellent standard of pure quality. The company is the largest employer in the village, but unlike most other fishing companies, Leigh Fisheries does not own any boats. Instead it has independent boats fishing for them: 30 boats are registered in the port of Leigh and some 70 longline vessels are registered in other ports of the North Island. 60 employees fish on the 30 boats with two people on each boat. About 30 people work operationally at «Lee Fish», filleting, sorting and packing the fish.
