LOCAL FOOD HERO - HARBOUR FISH
I am from a sailing family and spent my child-hood sailing around our beautiful shores. It gave me such a deep respect for our magnificent ocean, and it gave me a love for fresh fish. This weeks ‘Local Food Hero’ has the same respect which proudly brings me to Harbour Fish.

Harbour fish is a family business, run by two brothers who have had it for the past 10 years. Damon runs the fishing side and Aaron does the marketing and land operating side. A big part of their success is that they are always striving to offer the public the freshest fish. They started out with one boat and a shop in Port Chalmers but realised that they need more fish and more consistency so they expanded and now have many fisherman out and about the coast who sell directly to them. Harbour fish then do all the work and sell directly to us. Which emphasises the freshness of their fish!
You will find Harbour Fish factory in Port Chalmers which you can buy direct or you can purchase it 7 days a week from their central store. Aaron and Damon are very proud of all the many people that make their business a success whether it be the fishermen, factory and shop workers. They have a family style lunch together twice a week to sit back, enjoy life and to catch up.
You may also notice Nancy at the central store and the Otago Farmers Market, this lady manages the shop and is always helpful and constantly striving to offer us the freshest fish possible. Thanks Nancy!!
Thank you to all the team at Harbour Fish, thank you for caring about the mighty sea and thank you for bringing fresh back to our tables.
