Voting is now closed ahead of the awards taking place in October 2021 with other award categories including Young Achiever, People Development, Seafood Restaurant Experience and Environmental Stewardship.

The Large Enterprise Business Award is sponsored by Sunderland Marine and will be presented to a seafood business with a full-time team of ten or more staff that has made a positive impact to the seafood industry through innovation, service and product excellence, marketing and business growth.

Sunderland Marine’s Australia Manager, Chris Kennedy said, “Sunderland Marine has been insuring the fishing and aquaculture sectors in Tasmania for more than 30 years and became a sponsor when the awards first began, some fifteen years ago. These awards are all about celebrating Tasmanian seafood, the businesses, their employees, and their families. It is something that we will continue to support and endorse, a reflection of our own commitment to the future and the high regard that we hold for the Tasmania seafood industry and its people”.

The 2021 Stay Afloat Tasmanian Seafood Awards are taking place on 8th October at The LongHouse, Macquarie Point, Hobart.

NorthStandard – Irish insurance company name change

As part of our integration following completion of the merger to create NorthStandard on 20 February 2023, we have changed the name of “North of England P&I DAC ” to “NorthStandard EU DAC” with effect from 6 October 2023.

What’s changing

From 6 October 2023,  our Irish insurance company, North of England P&I DAC, has changed its name to NorthStandard EU DAC. This is purely a name change of the company and will only be relevant to those members and policyholders who are insured by North of England P&I DAC. Details of your insurer can be found in your insurance documentation.

There will be NO change to the terms of the underlying insurance business written by North of England P&I DAC other than the name change. All the other insurance companies within the NorthStandard group will continue to use their existing names and provide their current services.
