The secret to our great-tasting kai moana? Minimal intervention. Fresh and natural is best, no doubt about it: 100% natural, 100% preservative-free, 100% Aotearoa, New Zealand.

We can cater for your tastebuds and your budget – from loose smoked products such as kahawai and mullet, to premium smoked marlin, salmon and eel. Your heart will thank you too … our seafood products are naturally low in fat and high in protein and omega-3.

Gurnard, terakihi, trevally and snapper are caught in our local harbour so you can rest assured that you know where it comes from.  Eels are harvested from our Northland rivers and streams, cleaned and vacuum-packed for your convenience.


Every day it’s more important that we adhere to the best fishing practices which we are passionate about.  We use a sustainable longline fishing method so that we care for our resource, whilst ensuring premium export quality fish.


Our artisan hand-smoked seafood is 100% natural and 100% preservative-free. Try our delicious manuka hot-smoked salmon, kingfish, marlin, roe, snapper, trevally, mullet, eel and patés.


Our smoked products are produced with care in our manuka-fired smokehouse at our Coopers Beach property – we tend it every hour to ensure the highest quality product and superior taste. We use only local herbs and wood materials – all natural, no preservatives.

Apatu Aqua’s smoked seafood products are all packaged in random weight bags varying from 100gm to 350gm. Vacuum-packed, they have a shelf life of 28 days, and are naturally delicious. We can also supply loose smoked fish that has a shelf life of 7 days.


Our patés are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to mass-produced dips. Apatu Aqua’s patés are made in small batches, to order, to ensure freshness and consistency of flavour. With no added preservatives, these moreish patés have a shelf life of 14 days (although we doubt that they’ll stay in your fridge that long!)

Choose from Smoked Eel, Smoked Fish, Smoked Salmon & Herb, or our innovative and accessible award winning Kina Paté.

Try our fresh fish, eel, kina and scallops – we catch, process, package and chill using the ‘2 hour policy’. Our fresh seafood is packed on ice, and can be delivered around New Zealand

Try our smoked fish flaked on a salad, on platters, in pasta, chowder or pies.

Seafood Pate - Smoked Fish

Patés taste delicious on crostini, crackers and freshly baked bread or as a dip with celery, carrots and capsicum.

Seafood - Smoked Eel and Kingfish

Delicate smoked eel and kingfish are a striking contrast on a seafood platter.


We also offer a professional service for smoking and vacuum packing your fish for you … no fish too big or small. We can freight chilled to your destination.
