|Container handling equipment that allows Port Elizabeth/Newark to be among the most efficient container ports in the world.|
|For harvesting, buying or selling seafood,
New Jersey has in many ways an ideal location. New Jersey's commercial
fishing ports, whether at one end of the state's 120 mile coastline or
the other, are all within five or six highway hours of over 100 million
consumers - many of whom outdo the average American in pounds of seafood
consumed per person per year.
But, in addition to access to this tremenduous market, New Jersey's seafood industry is also within easy reach of several of the busiest, and most efficient, transportation hubs in the U.S. The airports in Newark, New York and Philadelphia offer next-day service for fresh seafood to virtually every major market in the world and the container port in Newark/Elizabeth handles hundreds of thousands of shipping containers each month, many of them packed with chilled or frozen food products. And no New Jersey fishing port is more than two hours or so away.
