kingi Board


Keeping fish in the sea, and nets out – one chopping board at a time.

Our three diverse groups have joined forces to help put an end to bottom trawling in New Zealand waters – and we’re doing it with this chopping board made from fishing nets and post-consumer packaging.

The kingi board is a special collaboration between sustainable seafood restaurant kingi, green technology startup CRITICAL, and LegaSea.

Designed by Rui Peng, co-founder at CRITICAL, and Tom Hishon, co-founder and chef at kingi, the kingi board is made using CRITICAL’s proprietary technology which turns old commercial fishing nets and recycled post-consumer packaging and plastics into a chef-grade chopping board.

While the kingi board is helping to raise awareness, and discussion about an important issue, one chopping board at a time, it’s also a really great product. It’s made to chef-grade standard that can be used in the kitchen, boat or the bach and it’s the perfect size for filleting too. Each board is unique in color and pattern, reflecting the fishing nets they are made from.

All profits from the kingi board go to LegaSea, a non-profit organisation dedicated to restoring the abundance, biodiversity, and health of New Zealand’s marine environment.

Available in three colorways.
