how we catch them

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 restaurants within 24-36 hours of leaving the boat. We're always very happy to provide detail on who caught the fish, when and how.

Fish out of Bluff and the Chatham Islands i.e. blue cod, may be potted. On occasion fish are caught via purse seine, with a net encircling a targeted school of fish, lifting, and placing them on deck.

Oysters and mussels are harvested, packed live, and to restaurants within 10-24 hours of leaving the water. Surf clams are wild harvested in the sub-tidal zone using a non-invasive hydraulic "clam rake" harvester. Eels are short fin, and caught using hoop nets.
