Oyster lovers around the world believe this humble shellfish is the purest expression of the ocean, captured in a single, succulent mouthful. And we’d agree.
That said, Northern Oysters are the purest expression of the Kaipara Harbour - invigorating, majestic, unforgettable and insatiably moreish.
The Kaipara’s connection with exquisite flavours is intertwined with its origin, when Arawa chief, Kahumatamomoe, after enjoying a feast of para fern root, declared that the area would from that day forward be known as Kai-para.
Today, New Zealand’s largest body of water offers an incredible array of kaimoana; from snapper, flounder, kahawai and trevally, to tuatua, cockles and of course our exquisite oysters.
Northern Waters is a family-owned business, passionate about delivering the freshest, export quality oysters to restaurants across New Zealand.
We use innovative methods of harvesting to ensure the kaitiakitanga of the waters and seabed for generations to come, and to make sure our oyster lovers can enjoy them the way nature intended.
