Consider the crayfish

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

These crayfish in holding pots at Sunday Cove, Breaksea Sound, awaiting the arrival of a helicopter that will whip them up, up and away, over the Southern Alps to land in Manapouri, where they’ll be offloaded into a DC-9 plane and flown to Auckland, then as airfreight to international markets—mainly China. It’s a lucrative industry, and recently, a sustainable fishery too.
