New Zealand is a nation steeped in the culture of fishing. From the days of tikanga-based fisheries management, whaling and toheroa, through to the quota management system under which we now operate, fish forms an integral part of our lives and of our food culture. The debate around seafood hinges on one word – sustainability.
Yellow Brick Road's ﬁsh is predominantly long-line caught on day-boats. Fish are landed live, ike-jime killed, placed into slurry, packed, processed, and to your restaurant within 24-36 hours of leaving the boat. I am happy to supply details on who caught your ﬁsh, when and how. Most of this information is available on the box in which it is delivered.
