Wild Caught by Free Divers in New Zealand's pristine waters
About NZ Pāua
NZ Pāua is a small business located in sunny Blenheim at the top of the South Island, New Zealand. We sell Pāua. We work closely with divers and quota owners to ensure we get steady supply of wild caught Pāua, and ensure the fishermen get paid a fair and sustainable price. All Pāua are harvested in line with the NZ quota management system. We supply wild caught Pāua to supermarkets, restaurants, and consumers both in NZ and internationally. We pride ourselves on our unique packaging and manufacturing process which ensures every Pāua tastes as if has just been plucked from the sea. You can find our products at supermarkets around New Zealand. If you would like more information, or would like to buy Pāua or become a retailer please contact us info@nzpāua.net
The Quota Management System (QMS) monitors stocks and catches, allowing the government to set Total Allowable Catch (TAC) limits for individual species to ensure the sustainability of New Zealand’s fisheries. The QMS provides quotas which provide the right to harvest species in perpetuity.
We sell premium wild caught whole pāua in the shell. Specially packaged and processed to allow this 100% natural (no chemicals or additives used), sustainably caught pāua to be kept frozen for an extended period or thawed and chilled for up to 21 days.
